Thanks for the compliments !

Unfortunately the sleeves are on hold at the moment. I couldn't concentrate much last week because of a cold :(
I really should have known better, but I started the sleeves anyway thinking no freaking cold would stop me knit...
bad idea! After having knitted 1/3 of sleeve number one I realized there was something wrong with it, but I couldn't point my finger at it
Went to bed instead and the next morning I noticed what was wrong. I forgot the cable that should have been on the sleeve!
I'm feeling a bit better now, but have to do a bunch of homework first.

It's finally finished! After the last post I didn't touched the sweater again untill two weeks ago. Since my wrists(+shoulders) hurted a bit back then, I didn't unraveled the sleeve completely and it stayed plain. There was just no way to knit cables...(probably shouldn't have knitted at all :rollseyes: )

It took me half an hour to calculate for the sleeve caps(btw. used this article) just to realize I worked with the wrong number of stitches from the beginning
I didn't recalculated it all, instead I just tweaked it a bit.

I really like the sweater, it's warm and smells a bit of sheep when it's wet. I wear it at home and don't have to heat my room!
But if I ever design a sweater again and actually want to wear it outside, I would change the armhole completely, making it deeper. I don't think you can see that on the pics, but the arm-body join does look weird, because of it's position.
