Grows on You

I haven't done a lot of knitting this winter. I've been working on a lap blanket here and there, and knitting this sweater.

The detail on the yoke is duplicate stitch, and I still have to do the matching sections on the body and arms.

As I was knitting the arms, I realized that they were getting too long. Before I ripped back, however, I grabbed the child involved and measured his arms again.

Yup. Between the time I designed this sweater and the time I finished knitting it, his arms have grown two inches.

Lucky me. No need to rip those sleeves after all.
