TNNA Report Part 1

Check out my other blog NotYourGrannysCrochet for some info about the yarns I found at TNNA, The National Needlearts Association Trade Show, last week. The ultimate yarn shop, and more!
And I promise I'll post some more info about how to read a crochet pattern, and gauge, and whatever else you want to know. Soon. I promise! :-)

Marty, I have been trying to email you regarding the 'not your granny's sweater' pattern that I purchased from Annie's Attic. The picture that you show of the completed sweater shows sleeves, but NO WHERE do I see instructions on how to make the sleeves. I very disappointed.

The sleeves are formed by the edges of the large granny squares. When you connect the sides, you leave room for the arms, and the looseness of the sweater forms the cap sleeves. If you crochet the sweater, you'll see what I mean.
Please let me know if you have any more questions.

One more thing - the sleeves are a little longer than just cap sleeves. But - they're formed by the loose squares. That's why this sweater is so easy to make and to customize and to wear. And once you're done, you're done!
