so i unraveled the sleeves to just above the elbows. reknit the garter border and the little curl of stockinette. i unraveled the bottom of the sweater too and added on some of the sleeve yarn, knit the garter stitch border and added a curling stockinette edge in the gray from the sleeves.
please excuse the blurry pics. i was having a bad camera day. i love the results and think that i will wear it even more now!
