Arwen is kicking my A...

But it's my fault. I'm trying to be all clever but I'm not reading ahead. I decided that my backwards loop cast on looked like garbage so i did a cable cast on for the arms - then realized i couldn't graft the cuff together that way. sleeve be gone. Then I decided that I'd be clever and end the body cable in the middle of the repeat so that I was doing the same part on the cuff after the short rows and miscalculated.

Anyway. I've ripped back, STILL miscalculated the body vs. cuff cable thing and added 2 extra short rows in the arm to make the cables balanced.

I really shouldn't knit with a cold.

After reading your blog I started the Arwen and love it but wish I'd added the extra short rows to make the cables match. As it is I'm useing 3 counters, front cable, sleeve cable, # of rows until I bind off shoulder(I added an extra set of 8 for length in body). There is no socializing while I'm using all these counters! Can't wait to see yours done. Jane P.
