Someone--was it Kathy B?--wanted to know how I was going to do the sleeve on my sweater. Well, I really didn't know. Twinnie I think said that she had a sweater her mom made where the stripes matched exactly. Yeah, that's not happening here, particularly with the blocky design of the sweater.
So, basically, I vamped.
The sweater body has two different colors of blue stripes, so I did a sleeves with the light blue on top, followed by six different colored stripes that sort of correspond where the sleeve hits when I wear the sweater, followed by dark blue, then a dark grey cuff.
Here's a close up.
And here is how it might look if the stars and planets align and I get a good block on the body of the sweater and if I hold my arm just right. And since I don't spend a lot of time posing in sweaters I think this will look ok.
That arm didn't take a whole lot of time, so that's good. I should be able to get this finished sooner rather than later!
