I'm actually hoping that it stays cold long enough for me to finish my Aftur and get at least one wearing before the weather changes. Especially since I'm knitting the yoke for the second time. I had it completely finished a couple of weeks ago but when I tried it on it had bracelet length sleeves
I'm not a huge fan of bracelet length for myself. I'm six feet tall and I always feel like bracelet length just looks too short. It's as though I bought the jacket/blouse/whatever too small. I'm sure much of my psychosis comes from a youth of wearing high water jeans and all the ridicule that accompanied it. For years, I checked hem allowances on pants before I tried them on. There just wasn't any point otherwise.
I know there are gazillions of people who have the opposite problem. They have to take everything up. But at least they have the option. You can't create length if the fabric isn't there. I realize there are some proportion issues but for the most part it's easier to make things shorter.
I've finished the first of the three fair isle motifs on the yoke. There are two more to go and then the collar. Evenings aren't looking too busy this week, so I should be able to get through it pretty quickly.
Please don't be mad at me when I tell you that I'm hoping that March goes out like a lion. Then I might even get a second wearing.
