Noro Jacket: DONE!!!
This was a huge project. I don't even want to admit how many balls of Noro this took but let's just say it was more than 10. I used to swear that I would never spend that kind of money to make a project. Then I turned into a yarn snob. Anyway, this was a pattern out a Noro book and I fell in love with the picture so I had to make it.
No, it's not just you. The arms are excessively long. I don't know what happened with this project. I made the medium, which is about what I am for most knitting projects. I typically knit right on guage so I don't think I knitted too loosely. And I made sure I measured everything very accurately to the pattern. This sweater is HUGE on me. The sleeves hang a couple inches past my fingers and the whole thing is too big on me. I'm not saying I won't wear it. I can fold up the sleeves and wear something pretty bulky under it. It will definitely be a cold weather layering piece since it is open in the front. It's hard to see but it closes with a beautiful handmade dichroic glass button that is made by a former employee at the bead/yarn shop. It truly picks up all of the colors in the sweater and finished it off nicely. But I will probably have to wait until next winter to wear this because the warm weather is coming!
