I'm up in arms! Don't worry. There's nothing inflammatory about today's posting. I just wanted to show you the sleeve I finished over the weekend for my Early Bird Special Cardigan.
As always, I started with the sleeve. This is a Kathy Zimmerman tip and an excellent one at that. By beginning with the sleeve, you can practice the stitch pattern and check your gauge, too. I breeze through the rest of a sweater after I've completed the first sleeve. For example, I can now literally knit this stitch pattern with my eyes closed. Unfortunately, the yarn is a bit splitty so I've got to pay attention. Just as well, right?
