I'm so glad you made that point as it's exactly what I'm planning on doing! My only concern is that I plan to have side seams and sew up the the sleeve (worked flat) at the same time as the body. How would it work to make the sleeves to what I expect for cuff length, keep them on a cable and then go to working in the round to finish the sleeves? I did get some of those hair doodads with claws for clipping to try it on for fitting but I expect that for sleeve length checking it will be more accurate after the seaming is done. Or maybe not, and I'm trying to solve a problem I won't even have.
