a) i won't have to keep stopping to try it on and check the sizing/decreasing/length
b) i'm using the right length cable for magic loop - for some very stupid reason I was magic looping on a 40cm cable for most of the left sleeve (i just used the cable i'd been using as stitch holder for the sleeve when i divided from the body). this is a terrible idea, you can't get a good twist in the cable so constantly moving alllllll the stitches around the entire length of the needle is a big time waster and also, annoying! why i waited until the sleeve was 4/5ths done to change? i'll never know!
c) i am now knitting this sweater as part of the Ravelympics Team BokBok MF (LSG) training group, and it MUST be finished by the end of May!
