I was just wondering if anyone was having problems with the sleeves. I am finished with the body, and got some shorter circs in the mail (not the 12", I couldn't find those anywhere, but I got 16", and was able to join just fine, so I figured they would be ok). My problem was this....when I reached almost the top of the sleeve (I had done the last increase and was just knitting even to reach the desired length), I tried it on and the thing was HUGE. It would have been fine if the sweater was in any way blousy, but I'm making the XS size (I'm not an XS person, but my boobs are XXXXXS, so I thought that size would fit me the best) and the sleeves were more like the XL (I could fit both arms into one sleeve). Has anyone made the sleeves? Any problems?
The other thing I don't get with the sleeves is why they are hourglass shaped as well. I was thinking of doing a small bell at the wrist area, but have it fitted most of the way up, since that is how the sweater fits. I am planning on designing a new sleeve, and just having the same number (hopefully) of stitches and bound off stitches at the top.
You can see pics of my dilemma at my blog- I would love to hear what the rest of you think.
