Sleeve Cap MCS

nona's hanging out tonight having a good ol' MCS, and loving every minute of it!  After tweaking the sleeve caps for the Elena cardigan, I was quite interested -- okay, paranoid -- to see if the sleeve cap would truly fit into the armhole.  Since the back and one front were finished, I sewed one of the sleeves in place followed by its side and sleeve seems.  Voila, all the pieces fit beautifully -- nona warned you she was having an MCS didn't she! 

One more front to finish and the Elena cardigan will be off to nona-niece-the-hip, just in time for summer -- who said the world was perfect?!

Nona,
I encourage you to take a larger-than-usual MCS for this sleeve set-in.
Working with a bias pattern and correcting the given directions for the sleeve cap entitles you.
