Thanks to everyone who weighed in and voted on the Pinwheel Sweater and left comments. It was very interesting to read the wide variety of opinions. Some of you said you thought it looked great on me, some of you said you thought it looked awful. I guess what it boils down to is that beauty is in the eye of the beholder, huh?
Before I posted yesterday, I had decided to knit on.
Here’s how much yarn I had left after knitting the first sleeve:
The first sleeve took about 150 grams, so I knew I’d run out. But last night I knit until I ran out of yarn, and, predictably, got about one-third of the second sleeve done.
I tried the sweater on again this morning:
Much better I think. The sleeve really helps.
So much so, that I think I’ll be able to wear it without a pin holding it together. The lack of sleeves made the sweater want to slide off my shoulders, and I do have narrow shoulders, which did not help things.
Lucy does not get all the hoopla over a sweater.
