A week or two ago Bells posted about the experience of being in Sleeveland
. And I can empathise, I’ve been to Sleeveland too.
The sleeves of husby’s Retrofit. And yes, one sleeve is longer than the other…
The first sleeve was just a bit too long – so I finished the second one, and measured it on husby this morning, and it was much better – it’s amazing how much difference a mere 6 rows can make to the length.
So now the first sleeve looks like this:
Yep, I’m still in Sleeveland. Hopefully not for too much longer…
As an aside, these sleeves are a nice measure of my available knitting time now – the first sleeve was knit the week before Connor was born – it took me 6 days all up. The second sleeve I started two weeks after Connor arrived – and it took me 13 days. But I also have to add that my mum has been here since Connor arrived too (and has been a huge help) – she’s going home on Saturday – let’s see how much knitting I get done from next week! That will be the real test!
