No, no... not like so long, I am going away. More like holy heck, my arms are SOOOoooooo long!
I ended up adding about 4 inches more sleeve than the pattern suggested! However I am happy with the length and that means I will wear the sweater without pulling at the cuffs all day long wishing I had just spent a little more time making them right. there is a mistake in this sleeve. Can you see it? Yea, I didn't think so. Which is why I didn't fix it. Now I just need to finish the second one... it is about 5 inches long now. Maybe I will duplicate the mistake and that way they will match. hehe.
Between knitting the sleeves I put the collar onto the sweater to mix things up a bit. It does not lie flat when it is laying flat, but does smooth out once it is on and stretches out a bit.
Who knows, I just might finish this sweater before the start of Fall!
