Things were going well:


The shaping was a bit squiffy, but my armholes came out great, and I was liking my neckline.

And then the sleeves went on:


And the sleeves were heavy, and so the entire sweater got dragged down a bit.

But, I did like quite a bit of what I did!  The neckline looks great, and the sleeves, while heavy, are pretty cute.  I was also pleased with the length of it and my armhole decreases.

I just won't use worsted weight cotton to make another sweater.  And after Sweater Attempt 5.0 [in progress and handling well], I plan to start dropping down the yarn size bit by bit so that I can see what different yarn weights do when worked up in sweater format.

That's a beautiful sweater! If you wanted sleeves that didn't have as much weight, you could try changing to a lacier stitch pattern for the sleeves.

Can't wait to see attempt #5!

Could you just put a ribbon or tie across the back neck to reduce the sagging from the sleeves?  It's a gorgeous job and it seems a pity for it not to get worn and worn and worn!
