Sleeves: Strike Two

Trying on my fully lined and buttoned jacket.

Today was a regular work day; both my husband and I went in to our day jobs and were remarkably productive (as one would hope if volunteering to work on a Saturday).  Even so, I still managed to sneak in a bit of work on my birthday jacket.  In fact, it would be complete if not for one thing.  Well, make that two things since the jacket has two sleeves.

The sleeves for this pattern are so long that you can’t even see my hands.  Here’s a photo to prove it:

I have no hands!

They’re also incredibly wide.  I’m now trying to get up the courage to bring out my seam ripper to once again tackle an unruly sleeve problem.
