The Sleeve

I'm on sleeve island, slowly moving with the waves... The first sleeve is complete, the second about half way.

Remember that Rowan's Denim yarn shrinks about 10% in length when you do the initial wash, so the sleeves are longer than usual. Excuse the hair--this was pre-drying! Notice that my daughter seems amused by Mom taking crazy pictures on the back deck.

The sleeve is as long as the child is tall! I haven't seen any problems with the dye coming off on my needles, though they are metal addis so they shouldn't stain. I have noticed a bit of the indigo on my fingers, but not much.

What else do you do with a sleeve? Apparently it makes a great scarf!
