Thanks Moni Dew!

I really like the cables and texture on Nell. The pattern calls for cabled sleeves, too....but quite a few Rav knitters aren't, saying.the cabled sleeves make the 'look' too much like a bear. I dunno. I like both sleeves, the plain textured sleeve and the textured sleeve with cables.

I don't know what to think...except that my arms aren't pencils. So maybe a plain.sleeve is best.

I don't know how the plain sleeve knitters modified the stitch counts. Usually, a cable needs more stitches to acquire the same width as a plain sleeve.

I'm at a loss....

A lot of Nell knitters did theirs a couple years ago, when the book came out. It's hard to remember what you did two years ago. I hate to trouble anyone...
