For the Sirdar sweater I've been working on, with the help of Ann Budd's sweater pattern book, I modified the drop-shoulder into set-in sleeves. My progress with the sleeves is actually pleasantly surprising to myself. It took me less than a week to finish both sleeves. Last night came the moment of truth - whether Miss Budd's pattern and my knitting work well:
Notice I didn't cut the yarn from the finished sleeve? I was fully prepared for the possiblity of frogging! But perhaps I should have more confidence in Miss Budd ... the sleeve and the armhole measurements fit! *Bunny dance was witnessed by Husband in the middle of last night.*
Non-knitting aside: If you live in New York city, watch out for this pervert on subway ... better yet, remember his face and when you see him, report him to the police.
