  • Oh, there was drama in my Stopover, all right. Mostly it was me thinking, “How can these people be done with this thing in what seems like 3 hours?” Mine took almost a month. It was my first sweater, so that may have been part of it. Let’s just say that I’m grateful for the first sweater prompt, but I was also grateful to get back to my own quirky little projects!

  • I always knit both sleeves at the same time. Same needle but 2 balls of yarn. That way they come out exactly the same and you only have to knit 3 pieces : back, front and sleeves. If you knit sleeves separately you will never finish the second one. It’s like doing socks separately. I finally learned how to do both socks together, so much easier.
