"I am one of those that had to tackle a too long sleeve, I did one wrong (OMG don't even go there on how long it took) and one right (completed in an hour)....what a difference! I thought it couldn't happen again? Then I finished a sweater and the neckband was way too big, After learning these techniques, I didn't hesitate to get out the scissors and make it fit! This is confidence building as well as skill building for knitters. Perfect timing Carol, you are right out front again on what knitters really need to take our knitting to the next level. Bravo!"
