Maybe it's an Aussie thing....

Cause I have a problem with the sleeves too!

Dang!

As I am using Karabella Soft Tweed my gauge and rows are spot on (PHEW!). At least I don't have to worry about that side of things.

But - as you can see I am measuring at 33'ish Cm's ( I am making the 41"/104cm size)...and I am on row 77. Schematics say that at the the 2nd part of the sleeve should total 33.5 cms but I have another 3 rows (not counting purl rows) left to do before I get to 2 stitches.....but boy howdy it is so long....

I am thinking about just knitting 2 tog to move on - I think that should work - it seems so long up my neck. I read Paisley's comments she received so I guess I could do the same thing at the end if it is too long. Spooky!

Apart from that I am still really enjoying the knit - just a little nervous that the whole thing is going to SWIM on me.

I am so happy I found your site. It appears we have more in common than knitting! I'll let you know when I complete the "world renound" triple lindee patern!

Well my sleeves worried me too when I was knitting them - but they ended up fitting without alteration. Funny thing - my row gauge was off (longer) but stitch gauge was perfect - so go figure!

I think my sleeves are a bit long too! I have long arms and where the last part on the sleeves says ...and knit to X inches, I was already 1/3 inch past that point. I was a little off on row gauge, but dean on stitch gauge--hmmm.

Im knitting the same size and I'm worried too about the sleeves. I have gauge but everything seems so big. I may just have to perform some "surgery" when all is done
