I'm even amazed at this myself, because usually once hot weather arrives, I tend to abandon sweater knitting. But here they are:
The sleeves for my Shetland Sampler Cardigan. One of the steeks goes right up the center in this shot.
For some reason, it seemed that this was faster than knitting the two sleeves separately. This must be psychological, as I had to knit the same number of stitches either way.
Besides ripping out those two dark colors that I knitted too close together, I made one other color adjustment:
The two browns just didn't have enough contrast for that section of the pattern. Embroidering over the old stitches was quick and easy.
I'm not going to cut them apart until I finish the body of the sweater, which is knitted a little beyond the bottom of the sleeve opening. Then I'll do all the cutting and sewing at the same time. After I put all the pieces together, I'll do the cuffs and bands. The end if almost in sight.
