Want to know what I think? I think Bianca is wearable, but that she’ll be even better after I wear her a couple times and the silk yarn has grown a tad bit. I’d like to have a bit more length and a slightly looser fit in the sleeves. The body length is just fine either way.

I suppose if the sleeves don’t grow any more, I could snip a row and add length. To be honest, I’m surprised they look an inch too short – if anything, from holding the sleeve up to my arm from wrist to armpit I expected they might have been too long after joining to the yoke.

This is only my second full-size adult sweater (the other one being Sunrise Circle). I learned just how quickly I can knit a sweater size garment and I understand a lot better how a bottom-up yoke sweater comes together. I definitely consider Bianca a success even if I do end up adding length to the sleeves. 🙂

    I 100% totally love it! I love the rustic-y yarn and I would bet that the sleeves grow out over the next few wearings to where you find them perfect. The buttons are a nice match – they look sort of granite stone-like.

    And again with the scary parallel lives. I just got new glasses – guess what they look like? 🙂
