Well, it took almost a year to make it b/c of hand problems, but the Andoa sweater (http://www.berroco.com/exclusives/andoa/andoa.html) is finally done. Unfortunately, it grew in the blocking so the sleeves are too long. Hmmm. Should I shorten them?
Details:
Pattern: Andoa from Berroco (http://www.berroco.com/exclusives/andoa/andoa.html), altered to skip one of the stitch patterns cuz DH doesn't like stuff to be too "patterny"
Yarn: Peru DK Luxury in Beige Khaki

Very Nice! What a lucky husband you have!

(I am really not the person to ask about shortening, but no I would not. When a project is finished -- it is finished. I don't take things back out.)

Great job, the pattern looks pretty involved as it is. Personally, I know the sleeves are a bit long but I think they look good...what does your lucky hubby think??

It looks great! I don't think I'd shorten the sleeves, they aren't that long. You could try re-blocking them shorter, too.

It looks great!! I'll bet your husband loves it. I wouldn't shorten the sleeves either -- they're fine just the way they are.
