Well, here's a thing. I have this orange sweater, and after a week of furious knitting, (see last orange sweater post) I managed to get a second second sleeve that matched the first. I cast on the body and spent a week knitting little ribbed boxes. And then I tried it on.
That's the ease around the hem. Yeah, that's more than I wanted. Ripped some more. Current iteration of the body fits better. Now I just have to keep going.
