Thanks for replying, and my thought was the same. I was going to do just a st st pattern for the body, and have the border the same. When I do the K1 on the rs, i would P1 on the ws so that it would still be a st of st st inbetween the border.
Regarding the sleeves, I will wait for more confident advice. Besides, I won't get through te sweater today anyway, so I have time.
Thanks again Hildy!
