WIP: Tubey
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 :-)

OMG! That last one of the cat is priceless! Is he just asking for attention? Oh and the sweater is pretty, too!

The sleeve looks wonderful! Honestly, that cat really does resemble an opera singer!
