Second Sleeve Syndrome

I hate fiddling with sleeves. They are always too long or two short. Even if you get one figured out there is always the other one to consider. I can't measure knitted fabric worth beans so I never get the same measurement twice on anything. Making two of the same thing is near impossible. I could knit two at the same time but that is so slow that I am pretty sure I would go insane. I saw a blog post recently where someone (Mary Scott Huff) knit a giant sleeve in the round and then steeked it into two sleeves. I think that was brilliant but I am pretty sure I am too chicken to try it.


  1. I always have the same problem with measuring my knits so now I knit both sleeves at the same time or a circular needle.

  2. I thought I was the only one who had those kind of problems!
