It always amazes me how fast the body of a sweater can go once the sleeve stitches go onto holders.  The last few rounds of the yoke section (as it's increasing), seem like I'm getting nowhere, but then, as soon as I separate the sleeves from the body, things really start to happen.  I'm working the decreases to the waist (this is a loose fitting sweater, but it does have some shaping) and then there will be increases for the hips.  I feel like things are moving along pretty well on this now!

Caleb is able to chew again now and he did some Euphonium practice over the weekend.  The band teacher is going to help him today with figuring out how to adjust to playing with the braces.  He's definitely done better this time around than he did last time.  Of course, there's a difference between Third grade and Sixth grade too!

retired brass player here. I never had braces, but my friends who did say that they used a "wax" covering for any wires that were sticking out. Obviously Caleb's band director will have lots of suggestions.
The low brass guys (tuba, euphonium/baritone) did seem to have an easier time of it than the high brass (trumpet, french horn). They also told me it broke them of the habit of using too much pressure on their mouthpieces.

Good luck to Caleb!!

I know exactly what you mean about sweaters zooming along once you separate the sleeve stitches! I love that feeling!

Hrmm that was weird, my comment got eaten. Anyway I wanted to say that it's nice to know that someone else also mentioned this as I had trouble finding the same info elsewhere. This was the first place that told me the answer. Thanks. Sbobet Casino Sbobet
