What yarn are you using Jan? Gosh I wish I'd known about that weaving trick when I was making that hat. Mine turned out soooo wonky but my friend didn't even notice and she loved it.
I posted a photo of my first sleeve on my blog and a commenter said it looks like the colorwork portion is too tight!
I thought I was doing it pretty loose and was hoping it would block out allright. I think I already posted that photo in this thread.
My gauge for colorowork is 1 st. tighter than stockinette (even TRYING to be loose), and my stockinette gauge is always tight as heck. I have to go up 2 needle sizes most of the time. I guess I'm just TENSE!!!
Aren't you somewhere super cold? I'm impressed you're making your own pattern!
