arrrgh. Forgot to switch to larger needles

My knitting has been lagging. I usually knit in the evenings, but my dog has recently decided my evenings are his, so very little knitting has been done in the past month.

I've finished the body and hood, but still have to kitchener the hood. I decided to start the sleeves anyway and was sailing along when I realized I forgot to switch to the larger needles when I finished the ribbing. I'm so disgusted with myself. I'll frog back tomorrow.

Oh well. It is only 3 rows.

Because of the vertical shrinkage with my yarn (Beaverslide McTaggart's tweed) I have to figure out how to elongate the sleeve cap. Pencil, calculator, and graph paper should do it.

Pics to come.
