Harvest Sweater- TinCanKnits-Cascade 220 Heathers in Pyrite (fools gold)- pockets on waste yarn. 

Body length. Now that I tried it on, I want more length. I found 2 more balls in my craft room. After I finish the sleeves, I will rip back the bind off to where I inserted the pockets.  Need to make the sweater longer and I also want bigger pockets.
