Some advice please....

Ok, so I've just finished the sleeves for the Jaqueline Fee sweater and am about to start putting all the pieces together. But While I was working on the sleeves I though I was going to run out of space before I added all the necassary increases, so what I did was to add more increases more often to get all the stitches before I finished the upper arm.

I have now finished both sleeves but as I have inceased more stitches in the last few rows I seem to have a little bingo wing thing happening. Im considering frogging back to where I started increasing more and spacing them more evenly to stop the bingo wings, but its gonna take me at least another couple of days. I guess I really should cos Im not really that happy with them so I supposed Ive answered my question really. In which case, thanks for listening to my rant guys. Smile

How funny!  Before reading

How funny!  Before reading this Wikipedia entry I had no idea what you all were talking about.  I can't even think of a name for this phenomenon in my American dialect .

"bat wings" is what I've

"bat wings" is what I've heard it called - but who knows - that could just be my family - of course we ARE practically large enough to be a statistical sampling.

Good God!  Perhaps it's

Good God!  Perhaps it's only British old girls that suffer from this phenomenan.  I believe Mrs Mills sported a good set in the 1960's. 

I have actually seen women at conferences cupping the underneath of their right arm with their left hand before raising it to get the speakers attention.  I say 'let 'em swing girls!'

My advice as well.  Maybe

My advice as well.  Maybe others will not notice but you will.  I always have the same problem as well and often do half the increases in the first row above the cuff and the other half spaced out.
