Sweater Surgery

I had a name for this sweater and it’s getting a bit ironic because I’ve had to rip back multiple times because of various issues.  So ironic that I’m thinking about changing the name.

This time, I had to perform sweater surgery.

I forgot to take into account the row gauge after blocking.  As it is above, the armholes are pretty large, but I could have lived with it if it wasn’t for the gauge after blocking.  So I grafted together 12 rows, then snipped and unraveled.

Now the armholes are about 6 1/2 inches and I’m on my second try of the sleeve cap.  I’m not convinced that it’s okay (feels too big now and it’ll grow after blocking) so I think I’ll try working the other sleeve cap before making a final decision.

This sweater WILL be finished this month!!!
