One large men's sweater, all knit up!
Last thursday at knit group I set a goal to have this sweater finished before I went to South Bend in September. Amazingly, here I am a week later with a completed sweater (almost). I still need to do the side seams and have a try-on to make sure the sleeves are long enough. I think there is a good chance that I may have to make them longer. Without the sweater recipient here (see comment re. South Bend above, grin), I had to go by some measurements I took the day before he left.
My notes say his armlength is 25 inches. The sweater pattern suggests 22. Hmmm.... ruler error or unusually long arms? I compromised, knit 23" and am prepared to rip back the cuff and knit more length if needed.
I hate to leave without a modeled photo though ...
Use your imagination... 100 pounds heavier, almost a foot taller, and having much longer arms!
South Bend here we come!
