Much Better

I am so happy. This sleeve fits. I usually knit just to be knitting but I really want to wear this sweater someday. I think I now have the secret to the sleeves but thinking ahead to the waist shaping is scaring me to death. I haven't had a waist in years but it still seems to be important to shape the Classic Lines Cardigan somewhat anatomically correct-while at the same time factoring in a front steek, no less. Lots of drama to come, I'm sure.


  1. Have you seen Shirley Paden's book? It's a design textbook and can be used for resizing patterns to fit. DISCLAIMER: I'm trying to sponsor a class in June. But highly recommend the book in any event. My local libraries have it, you might try interlibrary losn before you buy. Also check the Shirley Paden group on Ravelry.

  2. I'll have to look into that. I need all the help I can get!
