The current project is Skogafjall. All of the previous sweaters I’ve knit were done top down and the sleeves were part of the yoke, with the sleeve stitches being separated to waste yarn at some point and then once the body is done, the sleeve stitches are moved from the waste yarn back to needles and the sleeves are knitted.
Above is an example where the sleeves were knitted as part of the yoke, then separated off to waste yarn.
With Skogafjall, the sleeves were knitted separately and . . I’m not sure what happens next but I think I’m almost to the point of finding out.
The body is to be knitted to 17″ from the cast on edge and I’ve currently knit 15-1/2″.
The Oban cardigan is knit totally in pieces – back, 2 fronts, 2 sleeves. That will also be new for me. It’s good to learn new things, right?

You knit so fast! What is the name of the pink one above? I really like it and think it might be doable for me.
It’s humbling to learn new things. =)
