I'm sorry that I can't help out with the sleeves question, but I do have a pretty progress shot!
After frogging the whole thing and starting over, I've knit all the way down to where I want to increase for the hips. Did you guys basically just eyeball this? I've been slipping it on through the armholes, pulling it down in the back where I think it would hit if I tried it on for real, and...guessing.
I'm totally going to run out of yarn, and dummy me, I did not save the labels with the dye lot. Ooops. My plan is to save all of the ribbing and sleeves for the new skein. My hunch is that the change in texture will fool the eye from noticing a slightly different color. Sneaky, huh?
