Wrap and Return to the Turn

Hm, well, my holiday sweater has hit the skids a bit. I blithely knit on the first sleeve (I took the liberty to knit it in reverse stockinette to match the sweater body, the pattern calls for stockinette) last night without checking the wraps on my short rows until just before bed and lo:

I must have wrapped in the wrong direction on the back because they’re not beautifully invisible like they are on the front. Womp womp.

It’s just as well because I was afraid the sleeve would be too big for me and it is:

Pooch, badly lit in early morning bathroom light.

This style sweater is a bit of a departure for me. Not being a sweater-babe-type person I cast on a size that wouldn’t have as much negative ease as recommended so I thought this might happen. Back to the sleeves drawing board!

I love a tubular cast off.

This time with properly wrapped short rows and a maybe 4-8 fewer stitches picked up around. Not today, though, this sweater and I need a little break from one another.
