Tubey

Ok, so here’s the beginning of my “Tubey” sweater!

It took a long time to get the top shrug part right. My arms are so skinny that making the shrug the width of my upper arm measurement didn’t work, and I had to rip the whole thing out and add a lot more width, but I think it’s finally fitting ok. I knitted a couple of inches of each sleeve and wore it around for a while, and it’s not too tight under the arms anymore. So I picked up stitches all around and have started knitting the body tube, as you can see in the pictures.

The yarn is Debbie Bliss Cashmerino, in a rusty-orangey-reddish-brown color.

Also these photos show my cute hair!

    Yeah, I’m excited about this one! And now that it is suddenly summer, I can do short sleeves.
