I tried it on on Thursday morning. The sleeves are just past my elbows, so with a 3-3.5" edging on them, I think they will come out to be a perfect 3/4 length. The only problem is that the opening between the two sleeves is a little bit short. I needed help getting it off after I tried it on. Hopefully it will be easier to get on after everything is finished and I feel a bit better about pulling on the ends of the sleeves (and with practice I will figure out how to get it off on my own). I'm sort of tempted to put a crochet edging around the opening, to make it a bit sturdier, since it being a bit too small will put more stress on the edge when I put in on/wear it/take it off, but I'm a bit worried about making the opening even smaller. I'll have ot see how it fits when it's done (maybe even after blocking) before I decide.
This is my only active knitting project right now. I also have my mitered square blanket with tofutsies leftovers, but that one is on the long-term back burner. I'm looking forward to starting another knitting project when the shrug is done.
