Today is my second day of law school. It’s going well so far. I’m a little bit overwhelmed, but it’ll be ok.
I had a bunch of reading to do before classes even started so I haven’t done a ton of knitting lately, but I’ve been chipping away on the sleeves for Serrano.
I’m still loving this stitch pattern, even after all this time. I am eager to be done with this sweater though – I want to be able to wear it a few times before it gets too cold.
In the pattern pictures, the split cuff is a pretty obvious detail, and I’ve decided to keep it. I didn’t like how floppy the sleeves look though, particularly in the second picture (where she’s adjusting her hair). I decided to make the split portion of the sleeves only about half as long as it’s supposed to be.
The cuffs will still be a bit floppy, which was the final factor in my decision to make the sleeves 3/4 length. I think the higher up the cuffs are the less likely it is that the flopiness with bother me.
