Well, I don't know anything about steeks except that they intimidate me, but I wouldn't frog the sleeves. You never know. You might have an "ah ha" moment and be able to finish the next time you pick them up.

You can always leave them as a WIP and start the new sweater while waiting for the epiphany.

Best of luck whichever way you go.

I kept screwing up the bindoff and cast on portion, and finally gave up in frustration.

I pulled out the project bag tonight intending to frog and start with something easier, an EZ Fair Isle yoke sweater. But there were those sleeves staring me in the face and looking kind of cute actually... I tried both of them on and was just reluctant to frog based on how much knitting I already did on them.

What should I do? I wanted to post a pic of my progress but Photoshop is giving me fits right now. I can't resize my giant pic! Oh well, picture me with the sleeves done up to the bicep area. AND picture me with big biceps.
