After a week and a half of knitting I have completed the most time consuming, and brain numbing, part - the upper arm. This section represents the largest expanse of plain knitting. Because I am using smaller needles than the pattern called for, I had to increase the number of rows in this part to get the desired length; I wound up with 80 rather than 60 rows to achieve the 6 inches from upper cuff to ribbing just before the first puff. How are you all doing? How far have you gotten? Any problems or concerns as you are working? Did anyone else choose to knit both sleeves at once as I do?
