Sleevies!

minimalist cardi sleeves


Here are the sleeves for the Minimalist Cardi so far. I measured my arm from my shoulder bone to where I want the sleeve to hit and it came out to be 15 inches. After adding in a bit of extra ease for the puff above the ribbing (you can see how much was increased by the fact they won't lay flat), I will be knitting about an inch less than the pattern calls for. Hopefully this will work in reality as well as it does in Pink Lemon Land (my head). If it doesn't, I can always fix it later.

We had a little surprise this morning, two actually: baby bunnies! We've always had rabbits in the greenbelt area behind our house, and when you have rabbits, you get baby rabbits, but you don't often see them until they're bigger. This morning we got a treat and saw some tiny ones hopping through the grass after their mother. Caleb and Finn were equally impressed, although for different reasons.

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend. Here in the US, we're celebrating Memorial Day. I'd like to raise my knitting needles in respect and thanks to all of our armed forces, present and past, and say, "Thank You" for fighting for our country.
