|Can you tell what's going on here? |
(The important thing is that I can!)
Perhaps I'm just masochistic, but I thought I'd give it a try - naturally, this necessitated having to place a Knit Picks order when I realized I didn't have a long enough cable in my interchangeable needle set...these are the kinds of sacrifices that must be made sometimes (and if the limited-edition Sugarbunny just happens to find its way into your cart, too...more on that later!).
Ok, so the cable finally arrives and it's time to put my hare-brained scheme into action. My strategy? Putting each ball of yarn inside the sleeve it belongs to - this was suggested to me by my pal Sam (of The Wool Dispensary fame) when I first started pondering this experiment.
It's actually working, too - the only real problem is that the project has decidedly become a stay-at-home project, since you have to wrangle a full sweater and try not to let the working yarn from each sleeve fall out of it while you do so....but it's still better than having to deal with second sleeve sweater. I'm kind of sold on this concept - I may even revisit this madness for future sweaters.
