Really, you knew this was wrong after only 4 inches, but you continued until you had knit 17 ½ inches, really?!
Now let me get this straight, you were NOT drinking when you decided to continue knitting this sleeve, right?
Ummm, I don’t think that’s what Alana had in mind for this project.
You’ve been knitting for how many years?
What made you think you could get by with this?
Come on, you know better?
This amounts to how much wasted knitting time?
Sure, knitting 3 sleeves for every sweater is perfectly reasonable and encouraged.
Instead, what it is REALLY saying is, “I forgive you, it’ll be okay, so now go rip out what you’ve done, and start over.” “Oh, and yes, you may have a glass of wine while you do so.”
Gee thanks knitting, I love you too.
