Somewhere I can let out my inner crafter without being labeled as even more insane.

I’m really pleased with how this came out

It fits almost perfectly, I’m very happy with the legnth (no better picture bc my lap is now owned by the cat…). Trying it on so many times definitely helped, and it ended up being a smidge longer than I thought I wanted. Lol!

After the kerfuffle with my last jumper, I wasn’t at all confidant about my shoulders fitting properly, and so I left the balls of yarn attached to more easily frog (I don’t think this yarn would like being frogged at all!), but in the end it all fitted perfectly up there. I think I really like this saddle shoulder idea, it’s quite novel to have the sleeves come up and over! And I think it was easier to sew than trying to fit a sleeve into a body more ‘normally’. Definitely one to try again at some point!

The only thing I’m not too happy with is the sleeves.

The inside of the sleeve is considerably baggier than the outside. I was thinking this while knitting them and now I’m kicking myself for not quickly washing them to check, rather than doing the ‘oh, it’ll come out in the blocking’ nonsense. *sigh* If I’d’ve checked I could’ve thrown in some short rows to deal with some of the excess, particularly around the elbow. Oh well, I guess time will tell on whether it will eventually just stretch out…

Now that it’s done, I kinda miss having it around to knit on. After not being at all sure of the cables in the beginning, they rather grew on me. Oh well, onto the next knitting project I guess!
