So after our catch up week last week, the Delancey Cardigan KAL is back in full effect, and we are tackling the sleeves.

Picked Up Sleeves

There have been a lot of issues with picking up stitches around the armhole and working short rows to shape the shoulder, so I took some close ups of my armhole after I finished it to help KALers work it. If you are having trouble, check out our ravelry forum for helpful tips.

16" of Sleeve!

And here is my week’s progress! I’ve got about 16″ of my first sleeve worked. These stripes aren’t as fun as the bias knit stripes from the body, but they are still giving me enough to pay attention to that these sleeves are flying by. 16″ down, about 34″ to go.

Though by the time I’m done with this sweater it will be summer already! It’s mid March and 75 degrees in Minneapolis and I already feel stupid about knitting a wool sweater. What the hell, Midwest?!
