A Top With Five Sleeves

What do you think I do lots of when camping?  (Besides getting sunburnt because I forgot to put sunscreen on.)
Knitting of course!
My latest - 'Sweet As...' ready for testing soon!

Though I think the sisters-in-law think I'm a bit crazy.  I knit and frogged (un-did), knit and frogged, knit and frogged, then knit and frogged once more the same sleeve.  I basically did one each day - each time I finished one the girls were in bed so I couldn't try it on to see how it looked.

But I had to get it perfect!  (At least it was a short sleeve so it didn't take too long to do each time.)
It had to have just the right amount of 'puff'.  Not too little (like the first one), or too much (like the second one), or started and ended wrong (like the third one) but just right!

Do you think I got it right?


In case you're wondering, the 5th sleeve was the one on the other side once I'd got the first one right!


Some say he’s half man half fish, others say he’s more of a seventy/thirty split. Either way he’s a fishy bastard.


  1. It looks fantastic! I love the puffiness of the sleeve. The last time I went camping I spent every spare minute knitting!

  2. Its gorgeous. You got it perfect. And about the in-laws... Ah, so familiar.


Comments give me the warm fuzzys! Thanks for leaving yours...
