The slog of the first sleeve of Dayton is done. I always feel like the first sleeve takes twice as long as the second one. All the decisions are made, decrease locations set, sleeve length decided on. I’ve got my cryptic notes with which to speed through the second one. Then comes the weaving in of ends and blocking. One great thing about this pattern is once the sleeves are done all the knitting is complete. I have just the tiniest worry about the fit. It seems a bit long.
Well there is one other issue. The yarn, Cascade 220 which I’ve used many time, is bothering my skin. It’s making itchy. I’m hoping, really, really hoping that it’s just that I’m extra sensitive due to my overall elevated allergy level. See it’s ragweed season in my corner of the world and my histamines are off the chart. Once we’ve had a killing frost I should go back to my usual allergic level and the yarn won’t bother me. I hope.
