Hello sugar darlings!

Here's a progress pic of my back and sleeves. So far I'm loving the ease of this knit, I only have to remember the sleeve increases.

On that note - anyone else on the sleeves yet? My increases are on the wrong side row (man I hope that's right), and I'm doing a M1 increase one stitch in from the edge ...there is a little hole left though.

Anyone have suggestions on doing a stitch increase on purls?? Thanks!

I haven't started to knit it yet so I can't help you at all with the increase question. But your sweater so far...

Marce CPH is just beautiful!

What type of M1 are you doing? I'm working on my sleeves for Starsky and I was getting holes with my M1 too.

What I did was pick up the bar from the back with my left hand needle. I put the tip of the needle behind the work and then picked up the bar. It created a twisted stitch that I then knit and the hole was miniscule, much better than an M1 from the front.

I hope this helps!

Thanks! It does help SJ, because at least I know I'm doing the right type of M1. The thing is, I'm putting my needle in front to back because I have to do this increase as a purl, and I don't purl through the back loop so well - I get all confused.

Now that you said that though, I am going to try it the way you describe and look at some pics of ptbl to see if I can get it right and get a smaller hole.

The stitches have improved significantly, haven't they?

I'm almost to the armhole shaping! I've got about an inch to go. I'm thinking of knitting the sleeves in the round so that I don't have to seam them except at the armholes. I hate seaming.

Yes - it is noticeable. And the yarn shows up the cables really well too!

Hmmm.... wish I had thought of that!!
I read elsewhere online that the sleeves run a bit small in the circumference, so maybe you can account for that with a few extra sts to give it a little more width.

My time saver right now is to knit multi pieces at once (3 ziplocs going now!) as you were doing. I'm also going to block and seam the back and fronts as soon as they're done and before I start the hood.
