Anatomy of Annoying Sleeves

  1. Go to laundromat.
  2. Cast on 28.
  3. Knit 12 rows, increasing along the seam side.
  4. Realize the increases look like crap (too many too fast).
  5. Rip back to cuff.
  6. Knit 8 rows, forgetting to do any increases at all.
  7. Rip back to cuff.
  8. Knit again increasing on rows 2, 6, 10.
  9. Realize that increases should be on rows 4,8,12 etc. to finish increases as the first stripe begins.
  10. Rip back to cuff.
  11. Refuse to fold laundry until 24 rows of correctly increased sleeve is done.
  12. Go Home.
  13. Repeat steps 6 and 7 on second sleeve.

At least I'm past the increases now, but I held a sleeve up to a 2 year old that was at school today and I think I need to make them a bit longer.
