The one good thing to come out of this extended period of merciless snow dumping – one more sleeve to go. 

My motivation for making sweaters was being able to have the fancy colorwork garments that I couldn’t afford to buy. I didn’t foresee the greatest benefit, which is being able to make the shape of sweater I actually want – a huge, boxy body with sleeves of the proper length. My love of oversized clothing had long condemned me to sweater sleeves rolled up & up around my wrists like floppy tires, but no longer! Wrist freedom is mine.
