This might take some higher math skills . . . figure out which sleeve size you need for YOUR upper arms. Make the front and back for your bust size, as you did already once. When you get to the part where you are increasing for the sleeves, substitute in the section for the right size sleeves. So your increases for the front and back will almost certainly NOT be the same as for your sleeves - your F&B may be increase every row for so many rows and your sleeves might increase every 4th or 5th row . . .all depends on the difference between your correct bust size and your correct sleeve size. Once you get past the dividing point, it should get much easier, as you won't be working two different sizes at the same time. Does this make sense to you? If not, PM me and we can work it out. Good luck! I remember the days when The Girls entered the room at least a minute or two before the rest of me . . .

Go to Ravelry.com (you have to join, and it's free). You can search by a multitude of variables . . . I would look under Sweater, Mens, Adult, Free, whatever weight yarn (I'd go with worsted, personally) and whatever under Construction that speaks to you. I'd go with top-down, seamless in that section. Good luck and PM me if you want more help.

Somebody posted, within the last day or two, a picture of a bottle of Gees Linctus Cough Mixture. I'd like to purchase a bottle of the stuff - if anyone is able to consider this, please PM me for details. I'd be happy with an EMPTY bottle w/carton, if that makes this any easier for anyone. Thanks -

The following is true UNLESS this weather holds and the restaurant is not open (it isn't today, Wednesday):

Today's event of the day includes 3 hours of friendship, fellowship and knitting-ship at the Hen House Restaurant in St. Helen, MI. From 1 ish to 4 ish, we will be there. Bring your projects and join us! And maybe take home some dinner of the best broasted chicken ever tasted!

PM me for directions, information, etc.

Welcome from another Michigander. If you are anywhere near exit 222 off I-75, there are two open knitting opportunities in the area. PM me for details - we're always glad to see new faces.

Some of us knit for the tactile pleasure involved; acrylic yarn doesn't have that nearly as much as natural fibers. Some of us knit, on limited budgets, for people who enjoy what we make them and can't/won't care for them as they should; acrylic yarn is fine for those projects. You have to decide for yourself WHY you knit, and make your yarn purchases with your reasons in mind. There is no right or wrong yarn - just what works for you. I knit for all kinds of people, I knit all kinds of projects, and I knit with all kinds of yarn. Don't let anyone make you feel less of a knitter because of the yarn you use. You are making something out of string and sticks - you ROCK!

YOU may love Trump. You are entitled to your feelings. Please do not speak for all of us. I own my own feelings and they are NOT the same as yours. Thank you.
