Sleeves-- missing in action!

Well, here's the progress report. Everyone is counting on the sleeves to work out now. It's either a make it or break it kind of thing. Doing this in the round was great! I hate sewing, so only sewing the shoulders and sleeves is the only way to go! I would definately do this sweater again. I would add more stitches so that the ribbing on the bottom doesn't have to expand so much. I mean, it fits and all, but I like the closer ribbing look. I would also make the shoulders have more material-- meaning more length from neck to shoulder. However, this sweater was soo easy to make. The hardest part was picking up stitches for the collar. As you can see, there is a weird little glitch almost in the middle before the collar ribbing. I was thinking. If the decreasing looked a little more controled around the arm, it would make a great tanktop sweater. That would be a reall easy knit!
