Unraveled Wednesday

Just finished the cuff of one sleeve this morning and hope to get that second cuff done tonight. Then this lovely sweater is going to need a good soaking and some blocking. I knit both sleeves to the border section and before deciding on the color work for the cuff. I did not add the color work at the hem but thought the extra color before the ribbing worked for the sleeves. After struggling with the twisting and turning and flopping about of the body when knitting the sleeves, I think I will take a different path for my Sólbein. I am just past the yoke on that sweater and I want to knit the sleeves before continuing on the body. I am thinking it will be easier to knit the sleeves with out the extra bulk. I can also see the advantage of knitting the sleeves on their own, the bottom up style. So much fun to be learning and figuring these things out.

Thanks for all your encouragement last week. I decided to unravel to just before the color work and reknit the bottom of that sweater. I feel like I know so much more about color work and keeping the tension right. I know I will be much happier with the finished sweater.
