This is why when I have to knit sleeves flat I always do them both at once. Before the body of the sweater if I can, too. I figure that once the sleeves are done, there's now way I won't do the body! However, I have a couple of sleeveless bodies awaiting my attention! :rollseyes: They need to be knit on the sweater, and it's too hot, so I do have a good excuse.
