sleeves too big for arm holes
Ok so I used a ultimate sweater machine to knit a sweater. I followed the instructions to a tee even making a test swatch. Well when I was finished I ended up with sleeves that are too tall for the arm holes. I have been hand knitting a while and I remeber overhearing a conversation at my local yarn shop about fixing some problems by first using a sewing machine and the cutting the excess knitting away. I have loooked at my project several time and I think this could be done.....if indeed sewing with a sewing machine is enough to keep the stitches from unraveling. Does anyone have any input on this method? Just curious before I go sewing and then hacking away at my sweater. Lol
