Sleeve problems

I started on one of the sleeves for the Cherry sweater, but about halfway through I realized that it's way too small for my fat upper arms. In spite of having super tiny fingers (my wedding ring is size 3.25) and normal lower arms, I have these unusually large upper arms.

So, I've paused to figure out how I'm going to make the sleeve bigger without messing up the stitch count. I'm thinking of increasing the length, prior to binding off for the sleeve cap, thereby making the ribbing sit lower on my arms where it's not quite so flabby.

In the mean time, here's a shot of my new favorite magnets - cakes! Since cake is my all time favorite food, I knew I had to pick these up on our recent trip to the grocery store. I just wish we had a fridge to stick them on. Not that we don't have a fridge, but for some reason, magnets don't stick to stainless steel appliances. It's strange, huh? Posted by Picasa
