Something is wrong here.

And it's not just me. I swear it isn't. I've read the pattern a bazillion times.

I knitted up the front of Carson's Honesty T, and seamed the sides...

Check it out. There is something wrong with the arm. This sleeve just CANNOT fit into this sleevehole (and yes, according to the instructions the sleeve is ready for cast-off).

This pattern is from one of the Sublime booklets (#611 I think), and there are no errata for that particular booklet, -- but I don't have the pattern in that booklet. I have it in a booklet called “Knitting Brings You… Kids Knits April 2008." I'm thinking possibly this booklet repro has a missing bit of the pattern. I looked on Ravelry, and three people there have knit the sleeved version of this top, and I emailed all of them to ask. But I think I can easily fake it if I can't find a correction.

Yesterday I finished my intentionally-fraternal green socks from the yarn April sent me. They are possibly my best-fitting socks EVAH and I am in love.

I love the color, the fit, and how well they go with my pajamas.

I was irked enough by the problem with Honesty that I cast on a new pair of socks right away, rather than waiting until I finished 2 projects, breaking my own rule yet again. But this is Kraftie's merino-tencel handspun, and it is SO beautiful. She sent it to me in September 2007 and it's taken me a while to be ready to cast on. It's 80 stitches on #0 needles; I started with 2x2 rib and have just broken out the 4x4...

Ahh. I feel better.
