I finished the first sleeve! Once it was bound off I tried it on, and I’m so much happier with the length now. I can’t wait to get the other sleeve done and see how much better everything fits. I think I will end up wearing this so much more when I am happier with the sleeves.
When I finished the bind off I decided to pick up for the second sleeve right away. This time I took a photo of cutting the cuff so you could share in my pain. For whatever reason when I picked up the second sleeve I ended up grabbing stitches from two different rows in a couple places. Luckily I think I was able to fix everything, and most importantly there are no stray dropped stitches. Once I knit the first row or two I should be able to see if it looks ok, but I think I am in good shape. Whew!
