hi all! i'm new to the community, but not to knitting. like a lot of people here, i think, i've been knitting for a while but i only became serious about it / starting doing moderately trickier things, in the past handful of months.
in that time, i've knitting a handful of scarves, a handful of cabled hats, a pair of fingerless gloves, and two sweaters. i've been having a great time with it, especially the sweaters, they're my favourite to do, i think because you put so much of yourself into them.
aaanyway, now that i've waxed philosophical, a bit, i have a question.
i have an idea for a sweater i'd like to make, and unlike the previous two sweaters i made, which were sort of oversized drop shoulder sweaters, i'd like this one i'm sort of designing in my head to be more fitted. not...constricting, exactly, but only 2-3 inches of ease. so my question is this: if i do this with drop shoulder sleeves, will they pull funny? i read somewhere that drop sleeves on a more fitted sweater pulls oddly and i was just wondering if that's true. if it is, does anyone have any advice for a way i could do the shoulders that doesn't involve too much complications, but still looks nice? i'm mostly afraid that i'll knit it in raglan or set in sleeves and the sleeves won't match the body.
anyway, i'm sorry if this is too un-intermediate, and thanks for the help in advance!
