A Sleeve is Born

I started on the Ashland sweater Sunday 8/13. I had never done or taken the time to learn a tubular cast on before, but I always like to learn new things so I decided to try it.  If you have never done a tubular cast on you should. It’s amazing and I’m pretty sure there is some sort of witchcraft in doing it. I thought for sure when I cut out the waste yarn it would fall apart, but Alakazam! it turned into a beautiful cuff.

It took me 1 week exactly to finish the sleeve. I think it turned out beautiful even if it is slightly different from the pattern.  My row gauge was a little off so I have larger bands of white and less color work bands.

I did cast on the body which also called for a tubular cast on, but alas I am lazy and didn’t feel like doing it for 256 stitches. So I just did a long tail cast on.
