Good weather for knitting. Plugged into my audiobook, I work my way up the sleeve, increasing by means of left- and right-leaning backward loop increases. If you're not familiar with this method, you can visit here for a quick tutorial. Don't forget to work into the back of the right-leaning increase on the succeeding round. If you prefer, for this part of the project you can substitute M1Rs and M1Ls (just don't do this later on for the body increases).
Quite soon I have 44 stitches. Time to move on to a 16" circular. Yay! I prefer dpns over other small diameter methods, but nevertheless, I like when it's time to say goodbye to them. Do you prefer the magic loop? Or perhaps two circulars? I'm interested to know what you're doing.

Let's have a look at how the 2-skein plan to avoid colour pooling is working.
Perfect! I'm very pleased with the effect. Now, the sun has come out,
and I've just received a draft from Twist Collective for my approval, so I'll have to put my knitting aside while I do some proofreading. Only a couple of weeks before the Fall fifth anniversary issue! If you're in the Toronto area on Sept.18, the Downtown Knit Collective is holding a Twist fashion show to celebrate. More details down the road.
P.S. One knitter just couldn't wait for the KAL. Check out strikkeliese's "Anna's Jacket". So beautiful!
