Knit and Re-Knit

Total props go out to my yarn, June.  Not only is this 100% microfiber yarn a delight to knit with --  creating a stretchy light weight fabric -- but it can be knit, ripped, knit, ripped, knit, ripped, knit, ripped, and still knits up beautifully.  I know this, doubtful reader, because it took me 5 attempts to create a presentable sleeve. 

I was hoping to create a slightly longer version of the capped sleeve, but try as I might -- and I tried -- I could not keep the sleeve from bunching under the arm.  In the end, I kept the shorter capped sleeve -- adding a few short rows and some ribbing.  It looks nice and fits well. 

To the waist and heading for home...

The ribbing looks quite nice.

Is that the Nashua June? Beautiful color. And is this the sweater from the cover of the recent Interweave Knits? Very cool. (My apologies if you've posted this info and I've missed it.)

Hey, can't believe you didn't get more comments here. I can offer no advice about the sleeves, but this is going to be very, very pretty! I love the cream.

Great progress! I like the changes you made to GG and making it a combo of Tivoli. It looks great.

hmm.. i suppose if you really wanted a longer sleeve at the end you could pick up stitches from the arm hole and knit out. i don't know if it would have the same problem, though
