Starting the I-cord bind off on the sleeves threw me at first because you're knitting in the round - this means the working yarn is on the right hand needle, but you need those first 3 stitches to be on the left hand needle. I ended up turning the work so the wrong side was facing me - now the working yarn was on the left hand needle. I did a knitted cast on of three stitches, then I turned the work so the right side was facing me again, slipped those three stitches to the left hand needle and started my I-cord bind off.
The yarn feels very sturdy when you're knitting with it, but it softens up when you block it.
