EZ Seamless Sweater Sleeve

EZ Seamless Sweater Sleeve, originally uploaded by boizscareme.

Wow, what a boring picture. One sleeve is finished and I'm pretty excited. I ripped the last sweater I made with this yarn. I didn't like how it was comming out. It was a top-down raglan with the opening on the left raglan. I was not getting into it.

Anyhoo, this is from the Knitting without Tears book. I'm knitting in Gray Eco Wool on 8's. I figure if I start with the sleeves first, the rest of the sweater should fly by. I knocked off the 1st sleeve pretty fast. I casted on for the other sleeve right away. I'm about 3" into the second sleeve. Other than the sleeves, I have no idea how I'm going to do the yoke. I want a cute winter ski sweater for next year & I want to incorporate my handspun into the colorwork.
I finished my toasty toes!!!!!! They are sooooo cozy!!!!!
My jaywalkers are comming along ok. I'm almost to the end of the heel flap. I think I'm allergic to these socks. I bought this yarn back when I had my ratties. Everytime I knit with it for a while I start having breathing problems and start to itch. Come on... they yarn is make of wool/nylon/cotton. I usually knit with any kind of wool!!!
I dunno. I just love this sock yarn too and I cannot get rid of it.

I made my boyfriend a scarf once with Eco Wool. I loved working with it. It was pure bliss and the skein is huge, and the best part was there were no knots in the yarn. Your sleeve looks great!

I want to make the same sweater! (eventually, VERY eventually!) I can't wait to see your progress on the body. Good luck!!

Loneknitter- Eco wool is nice!
Not too scratchy either.
I found a small lys that I've not visited before and they sell eco wool for $16.

librarylass- I'm too excited about this sweater. I knitted 3" more on the 2nd sleeve last night. It's areally easy pattern you should give it a try!

Ok, not a boring picture at all, it shows your sleeve in all its glorious detail. I feel that sleeves are even more tedious than second socks, so I am impressed...
