The 1st 2 images are my hornshaw skeinwinder. I put a peg outside because I always wind it pretty tight off the bobbin so I thought maybe think will give me more room. I can never fit the skein back on after i wash it at the same circumference.
Here's the armholes of my freeform sweater. I think I want to make another one but do a quick video to explain my madness. If you compare my 2 shoulders you may notice that the lower stitchmarker in the upper image sits lower than the 2nd image. I will try to compensate for that. I just cast on randomly. I think I might make this only 3/4 sleeve length. Perhaps i won't even worry about whether the sleeves match up. I did a lace hem that I sorta wish I hadn't. It gives it a formality that is kinda wrong for this sweater because it's all off kilter. It might end up looking better when it's all done though. I just want to make something that fits without a whole lot of thought.
