One Sleeve


Yes, this is one sleeve for Juno. I know, I always knit both sleeves at the same time, just like I did the fronts for this sweater, but I decided not to this time. Why? I'll tell you! Juno is knit at a pretty big gauge (4 stitches per inch), which means there aren't many stitches across each sleeve. If I'm juggling 2 sleeves and two balls of yarn at once, at this gauge I'm spending more time untwisting the yarn and sorting things out than I am knitting. (No, I can't knit with the yarn twisted up and the sleeves hanging wonky-like. It bothers me. I've tried, but I'm just too OCD to do it. I'm OK with this.) Realizing this, I decided, FOR THE FIRST TIME IN MY LIFE, to knit the sleeves separately and just keep really good notes (which I already did for some reason). This is so exciting! I'm really pushing the envelope here, in a knitting kind of way. If you put knitting in envelopes, which we usually don't, but you know what I mean.

Who knows where this will go - fronts knitted separately, more sleeves knit apart from their twin, anarchy, chaos - who knows!

Have a great weekend, I'll try to keep things under control around here.

Asymmetrical sweaters are popular now, right? LOL On the other hand, a "yarn bra" or net bag such as marbles come in pinned to each sleeve would/could keep the yarn tangle-free. Has anyone tried that?

BTW, I wish we could edit our comments!

I admit it was a bit odd to see a picture of a single sleeve on your blog :) I've been admiring Juno and I'm looking forward to seeing yours.
