I've decided to knit the sleeves for my hexacomb cardigan flat, like the pattern calls. I think the set in sleeves will look nice (as laiane suggested). Anyway, I've also decided to knit them at the same time, to avoid second sleeve syndrome.

I'm knitting them on the same needle, from two different balls of yarn. This is the first time I've done this, but I'm loving it so far. Every now and then I screw up and turn before I'm supposed to, but it's mostly going well. And I'm psyched to know that when I'm done they will both be done and I can get to the finishing! (yay! and nooo!!)

p.s. I finished up the little elephant for Emma this weekend, I'll post some pics and notes soon!


  1. I think two sleeves at once is the only way to go.

  2. Yeah, and I ended up putting little stitch markers on the outside ends so I stopped turning accidentally in the middle. (That sounds strange but it made sense to me...) Anyway, it helped.
