Oy.

I finished the first sleeve of Mossy last night.

I ripped out the first sleeve of Mossy today.

Although it turned out exactly as I had planned, I didn't like the finished product. Too narrow for the design. It really needs a more relaxed sleeve shape. So I'll give it another shot. Times like this, it's good to be knitting with aran weight. And top down. Definitely, top down.

I am especially struck by the ball of yarn balanced atop the turtleneck. Quite striking and artistic.

Oh, and the sweater is nice, too. ;-)
