You may remember that we were a little uncertain about the sleeve cuffs of the Bada Bing sweater – they seemed like they might do the stockinette roll. And roll they did, in a most annoying way. Here’s a close-up of the cuff-rolling action: I ripped this out and knit a 2x1 rib for about 12 rounds in red before re-adding the grey edge. Here’s the fix: This yarn (Berroco Peruvia) was heck to pull out. It is so fuzzy that it had forgotten it was once a strand of yarn and wanted to become one with the entire sweater. I cut most of it off and didn’t try to save the yarn.
Also, this sweater has given me the opportunity to remind my loved ones that wool and Velcro are enemies. Boy 1 said “No, Mom, they’re friends, because they like to stick together!” But I maintain that they do not stick together in a good way, and therefore are enemies.
