A Sleeve is Born
Anyway, I'm now to the part of the sleeve that goes round and round and round so all I have to do at this point is keep knitting and take notes so the second sleeve matches the first. It looks a little gathered and puffy because it's on a 9 inch needle. It will be a regular, long sleeve when it's all knit, not puffy.
There was a comment on this sweater on Monday about the color and unfortunately both Monday morning and this morning it was overcast (today it was actually raining!) so the flash washed out the color some. I tried to correct the color, but it's actually a dark, wine red, not a deep rose. At some point you'd think I'd realize that reds don't photograph well, but as a brunette I just love reds too much to stop knitting with them. Sorry about that.
