I added length to the sleeves because I wanted to use up more of this wonderful yarn. :-) I’m really happy with how it came out and how it feels now that it is machine washed and dried. I plan to wear it over a tank and it will be a perfect summer top.

Swatched with 3 and didn’t like it. Used 2.5 and it looked better. But when I washed the swatch the size 3 was fine.

Started the sweater yesterday and I thought I knew what the short rows were doing, but the further I go the less I understand. Blind faith now. :-) This is going to be an interesting knit!

Jan 2018 update:
After I got going on the the sweater the neck and shoulders made sense and were fine. I’m now most of the way down the body, but have put it away until nice weather is around the corner and I have motivation to get it finished. I have quite a bit of the yarn so I am considering putting on sleeves when I pick it back up.
