Short sleeve
What to do when your sleeve is too short?

I just finished rehauling a sweater...and the sleeves are just a touch to short...and when I say a touch...I mean for the most part they are fine..but if you move your arms in anyway they seem a little short...

It is 100% wool...do you think I can stretch it out while blocking??

I can't speak from experience, but it seems to me that blocking would work if it's just a little bit.

Yeah...it is just a touch too small...if I could get it to stretch out even like a 1/2 inch...they would be perfect....

And it is 100% wool....wool has give doesn't it?

I believe it does so it's pretty easy to adjust when blocking as long as you aren't trying to change sizes completely or something.

I have it blocking right now...and I really stretched out the sleeves...and by tape measure they should be ok....in fact...perhaps to long...Right now...as long as I don't have to frog it...I will be happy....

I will post the pic later on Ravelry....
