'Cause sometimes I even surprise the knit out of myself.

Sleeves of Neanderthalic Proportions

So I decided to try on Green Gable last night since I was up to the collar....uh hmmm we have a problem. My gauge was spot on, I followed the pattern...what happened to my sleeves? Any lower and I'd be grazing my knuckles on the floor like a modern day caveman! Ok that totally doesn't work huh? ehh um never mind.

I kind of feel like the Green Giant. I like the cables and I've been so excited about this sweater so I will not be deterred by my jacked-up sleeves. Hopefully, I will have a fixed sweater by the weekend so I can model it in 80 degrees, 'cause that's how I roll.
I take matters into my own hands, people. I will not be bullied by what I thought was a perfect gauge swatch.
Trust me my lovelies, this will hurt me more than it will hurt you............get the wine...we're going to have a little confetti party.

I love the center cable in the back and the color is gorgeous!!! So are you thinking of cutting the sleeves, ripping a bit, and then regrafting them back together? I *still* need to do that with my Klaralund sweater that has similar-length sleeves.
