The body of the cardie is done up to the armpits. Yummy word, that. It makes for a pretty dull picture as it’s a big wodge of stockinette.
I did start the first sleeve last night, but the cuff was coming out huge. I was using the same needle size as the body. The only difference is that the body is knit flat and the sleeve is in the round. I went down to a size 2 needle on the sleeve and it still looks a little big, but I don’t want to knit up some kevlar like fabric. If it looks crappy with a few more inches done I’ll rip and use a 1. I won’t be happy, but I’ll do it.
I can’t wait to get to the fun yoke part and knitting up sleeves on size 2 needles means that I’ll be looking forward to it that much longer. I need more long weekends.
