Starsky, so young, yet already it has been forced to endure so much. But the ordeal is not over for this brave little knit. After extensive seaming and trying on it has been determined that Starsky needs emergency corrective surgery to repair her freakishly long arms. Even with all five and a half inches of the ribbing cuffed, we could not find the wearer's hands. Because the set-in sleeves are already, well, set-in, we have determined the best course of action will be to actually cut the bottom of the sleeve off. New stitches will be picked up from the end of the sleeve, and a new cuff will be knit in the opposite direction of the original knitting. It is a very experimental procedure.
But the trauma does not end there.
Unfortunately the only surgeon available has never performed this sort of surgery. And due to rigorous trampoline jumping commitments (and a few nervous twitches at the thought of cutting her precious knits), this inexperienced surgeon is not available until sometime Thursday.
Let's hope Starsky make it until then.
