I'm chugging along with this thing, slowly but surely. I'm halfway through the second sleeve and I have to order another ball of KSH! Anyway, I had two revelations last night:
1. there is really no point in going through the effort of the slip, knit, psso. you might as well just knit two together instead - the results are practically identical. Try it! I think i would have knitted this thing in HALF THE TIME if I had done that.
2. it would have been worth it to account for the one-stitch offset that the increases cause in the lace stripes. It would just mean that anytime you have an increase or decrease in a lace stripe, just knit two on either end of the row instead of one for the rows that follow the increase/decrease row (or vice versa, knit one instead of two). So little effort. Granted, no one will notice. But I think the result would have been a touch neater.
3. i am actually tempted to knit another one of these in another color. It would be so easy now that I have the method down. Scary! I should probably finish this one before I start thinking about another!
Anyway, here are some recent pics:
