I’m making sleeves for my Alison Pullover. After all the work on the body of a sweater, the sleeves seem like they should fly by, but I swear they take almost as long as the sweater body. One thing that slows me down a bit is using the two at a time Magic Loop method. I learned how to do this from this excellent post on Jimmy Beans Wool. You have to keep going back and forth between two balls of yarn and readjust the sleeves on the cable. The first couple of rows are hard as the knitting doesn’t have a lot of weight and you have to be very careful as you pick up each sleeve that you don’t turn them into mobius strips. After a while, the rhythm starts to flow, but there’s no getting around all that shifting on the needles and dropping and picking up a new yarn every twenty-some stitches. The good thing is, though, you finish both sleeves at the same time!
