Here is the first finished sleeve. Can you see the difference in length?

So, I got home tonight from stix and began cutting the second sleeve all by myself.
I pulled out The Big Book of Knitting which I have been informed by several people is only book they are aware of that covers shortening and lengthening sweaters (after you have finished knitting them). And began cutting the second sleeve.
I cut off over eight inches. I am now knitting the cuff.

Well, I was working on the sweater until one Puffiness launched one of her revolutionary protests and sat on my sweater.
That's okay, I finished the body of Purple Gable and I cast on the sleeve for this sweater (backround purple). Since, I am doing one of my old reliable 3/4 sleeves knitting the remainder of the sweater should not take so long.

OMG! I passed the comps! Who-hoo! Thanks to everyone who posted comments and sent emails!

Congratulations on passing the comps! Yay! If you can cut into a sweater and shorten sleeves, you can pass the comps. That was a no-brainer!
