[with apologies to Sting]
Yes, making a top-down raglan sweater is way easier than making it down-up in pieces. Yes, I am a perfectionist and when I bind off this sweater at the waist I have to use a tubular 1:1 rib cast off. And yes, doing it on over 200 stitches borders on insanity. But doing it with one long, long, long bit of Noro Iro? Totally wrecks all the time and seaming that I have saved on doing the top-down raglan sweater.
Loony bin, here I come.
