I decided to do the Magic Loop thing for the sleeves.

Drops 103-1

I picked up stitches around the armhole and shaped the sleeve cap with short rows. I think it’s going to work out fine, although that darn cable keeps flopping up into the way while I’m knitting.

    You’ve got to show that cable who’s boss. Maybe 40″ would be easier.

    You cannot let that cable win.

    Sometimes I think it should be called Annoying Loop.

  4. Carrie says:

    If the cable is being particularly annoying, I stick my arm through it.

    The magic loop method is way fun on sleeves.

    Hmm. It all sounds very violent. I think I’ll knit a vest, instead.

  7. Monica says:

    Yeah, I don’t use such a long cable for magic loop. 32″ is perfect for me.

  8. Norma says:

    Yeah, I like the idea of “annoying loop.” Though some people, of course, swear by it. Someday you’re going to have to show me how to do sleeves that way.

    The sleeve looks good. I’ve never tried magic loop as I’ll happily shove over 100 stitches on dpns. A flopping cable does not sound like fun.

    Does twisting the needles help, so that the loops go down instead of up? It usually helps me, but I only have 40″.

    Hopefully one of the tips above allowed you to whip the cable into shape!

    I love magic loop for sleeves. Your sweater is looking great!
