I finished the first sleeve on Janda last night. I had been thinking that the sleeve was done with intarsia or mini-fair isle, but as it turns out you crochet the white stripes on later. The sleeves are a little strange in other ways — the cuff is done in K3P2 rib for two inches, then when you start the sleeve stripe, you switch to P3K2P3. I didn’t realize that, and thought it was so clever that you’d carry the P2 section up from the cuff. So my stripe is ever so slightly off center. But it’s only one stitch off, so I don’t think it will bother me.
The All Seasons Cotton is pretty nice. I’m using bamboo needles, and it grips them a little more than I’d like sometimes. In the gray skeins there were two knots – one early on and the other right in the middle of the skein.
Okay, back to the probability proofs that are kicking my ass.
