I'm kind of a dumbass

I just wrote an entire post on how terribly written the Whisper Cardigan pattern is, because there is no schematic and no measurements except the “x inches across back” in the size descriptions. This has made the project difficult because as I knit the first sleeve I had no idea how long it should be – the pattern instructions are all based on how many rows you are knitting with no helpful “sleeve should now be this long” instructions. So I guessed, bound off for the underarm and began knitting the back.

A few minutes ago, I pulled out the pattern again to check something, and a post-it note fell off the page revealing all the information that I had been missing. Not a schematic (which would be awesome) but several helpful measurements.

Since I now have nothing interesting to write about, I’ll just show you a progress shot.

Luckily, it turns out that my sleeve is the right length!

I would like an entire wardrobe this color, it makes me feel springy!
