I have been working on my pullover when I haven't felt up to working on lace and I finished up one of the sleeves last night. I'm doing top down set in sleeves. I really like the technique, but I like any technique that cuts down on the amount of seaming that I have to do. I also think it is a little bit of magic the way the sleeve appears. I deliberately made the sleeve with some positive ease because I really don't like tight sleeves. I also came up with a very slick way of picking up stitches for the sleeve evenly around the armhole. I used an app on my iPad called Knit Evenly Calculator by JAKRO SOFT LLC. I have been using it for evenly increasing and decreasing in patterns. I love the way it will step you through each increase or decrease. For picking up the stitches I used it as a decrease counter. I knew how many rows I had knit for the armholes, and I knew how many stitches I needed to pick up in the armholes (not including the stitches of the underarm). Wherever the app told me to k2tog I simply picked up a stitch and then skipped the next pick up spot. It worked like a dream. On to the second sleeve.
