Bummer... I really hate it when I make stupid knitting mistakes. Then to not catch them until I am over half way through the body of the sweater REALLY sucks. Short story, long. The sleeves of Eli's BTSS (Back to School Sweater) are too narrow (by half) because *I* measured them incorrectly. Instead of taking the measurement of half the sleeve at the bottom of the raglan seam (which is the measurement I took of the sweatshirt I'm copying), I measured the entire width of the sleeve, ergo; it's too small. I thought the proportion looked off, but I kept knitting. I even had the sense to start knitting the sleeve to double check. I had Eli try it on (it fit, sort of), I knit a little further and had him try it on again (it still sorta fit), but finally my brain kicked in and I made the difficult decision to frog it and start over. I was halfway done the body, but still had the sleeves and the hood to finish, so I was less than half done the whole sweater, at least that's what I'm telling myself.... Here it is before I frog it.
It was looking good, no??? The positive part of starting over is that I did not do a short row back collar, which I should have done... so now I can.... :)
