Okay here is the first sleeve! Yay! My colors are asparagrass, cinnamon (brown), moss (dk. green), and RHUBARB (pink--i *love it*) merino style.


The first pic looks like there's a jog in the brown/green... well there WAS one, but I fixed it with duplicate stitch and now it looks better.

Instead of knitting in the round, I turned it inide out and purled int he round, because (for me) purrlingis faster and I have to move my hands less. In the st st park, where it is flat, I can see more stitch inconsistancies, but once the round part started and I was always purling, that didn't happen anymore.


Stanley decided I should take pictures of him instead, so there's one of him posing on my sleeve and then one of him singing a lil kitty song about my tubey :-)

thank you thank you!!!

I wasn't going to use the pink; I had picked out "honey" which is a pale but warm yellow... I wax going for "organic". But I didn't think it *popped* enough. then I saw the pink in my stash accidently laying next to my color for the tubey, and I was like "hmmm.... red and green are complementary colors.... so would pink and light green work????" I like how it looks now, kind of like the leaves and the dirt and the flowers. I was debating on whether or not to add stripes to the body, now, b/c I do have a lot of yarn left... but I think that the pink would then draw attention to areas I'd rather keep... subtle :lol:

Stanley IS yawning, but I thought he looked like he was singing because of how his head is angled up... and his eyes are totally close (usually he just bugs them out when he yawns) so it looks like he's smiling. He's happy because my tubey is so pretty. :-)

Something is seriously wrong when you start taking accidental pictures of your cats and then analyzing their emotions.
