Yet another progress post

Just thought I'd post with my progress so far. I was knitting the body like crazy to get it done as soon as possible (I'm so excited by seeing everyone else's finished sweaters!), but I've hit a bit of a standstill now that I've gotten to the sleeves. I was going to just use DPNs, but after I got a few inches, I decided that it just didn't look quite right and was going very slowly, so I decided to scrap it and order a 12" circular. Until that gets here though, I'm going a little nuts from not being able to make any more progress on it! Anyway, here's a shot of what I've got so far:

I totally understand! I couldn't wait to order 12" circs, so I just knit the sleeves flat and will seam them up before joining to the body. Hope you don't have to wait too long for your needles.

Another option is to use 32" or 40" circulars and the Magic Loop method. I used this for the first time making socks and think that it would work for these sleeves as well.

Woohoo, the needle came today! As soon as I get done prepping for this mock trial tomorrow, it will be sleeve-city.
