Cruising along with my new longer needle last night thinking "oh just a couple of more rows...I can't be at the point where its time to separate the stitches for the sleeves yet!
Besides I had it in my mind I needed to try the thing on rather than measure because that is what my new longer needle was allowing me to do with this new-to-me fancy top down knitting stuff.
Did I think trying it on would yield wild new information? Knowing (through measuring recent FO's) I need no more than 14" total distance around for a well fitting sleeve? Perhaps I did because onwards I knitted without measuring until this morning when I took the time to try it on.
I've decided to go with "I was too lazy to measure" rather than something more like "too stupid!"
Finally connecting the dots on the most basic of questions related to avoiding stupid mistakes...it wouldn't appear it will be anytime soon!
Have a great weekend, thanks for dropping by!
