I picked up the needles on this sweet sweater and slogged through the issues, and then I really started to enjoy it.
I still have to try it on my wee boy for fit at the under arms. This may not be the last you see of this sweater. It might be that I have to take apart the body, pull out the second sleeve, and the yoke and go all the way back to the end of the first sleeve to work in those armscyce stitches.
The world doesn't wait for maybes. It moves on. For now, the sweater is done and I am pleased.
