See this?If you look closely at the bottom left, you'll see that little piece of white yarn sticking out over the cast on. That's because I thought I was going to be smart and sewed the little ruffly cuff onto the sleeve edge before I sewed the sleeve seam. The only problem was I didn't read the directions carefully enough and didn't line it up right. So I had to take it off.

But I had already woven in the ends and had some trouble finding them. When I finally pulled it out, I was horrified to discover that I was pulling out the cast on! Yikes!

So I pulled out a crochet hook (once I found the right end and had taken off the cuff) and got creative. I don't think I did too badly--that one little piece of white is the only giveaway. And the cuff gets sewn on top of it so it won't show.

Here's how it looks with the cuff on it:
It's not the best picture, but I hope you get the idea. I've actually got it finished. I just need to sew on the buttons and it's ready to go!
