On the sleeves you could use a shorter length cable and use a variation of the ML, where you just pull out the cable on one side. I use 24 and 32 inch needles on sleeves with this method.

... very similar to SKB... I like this one a lot too, I think I'll knit this one next.  I am in love with top-down raglans after working on SKB!!

I can't tell if you're saying that you want to knit Sahara because it's a top-down raglan, but just in case you are [or for those that come after] I'm pretty sure the sleeves on Sahara are set-in. Definitely not raglan at any case. It is a lovely sweater though.

No it's not a raglan, but it is knit on one piece. From the description:

Quote
"...worked from the top down in one piece so that you can try it on as you go:  it requires no seaming to create the fitted set-in sleeves, precision-tailored waist line or the gently curved, bottom-and-tummy-conforming hem."

Should be fun!!

That new StitchDiva sweater is beautiful. Looking forward to making that one.
I enjoy the top-down sweaters because I hate seaming. 
I am working on a top down raglan for my niece. Fortunately, she's only in a 3T, so I'll be adding the sleeves this weekend. I figured I'd do one for "The Almighty Zoe-licious One" too. Maybe I'll use some of my 3.5 leftover skeins of Noro for some stripes or trim... although I should just get rid of some of my stash if I do stripes. Noro is kinda pricey to put on a toddler, even if she is my little fashionista. Smiley

Very pretty dramageek. 

All the skb's posted here are gorgeous. It's great seeing them knitted with all the different yarns.

I finally finished the body of my SKB ! I love it, but I expected it to be a bit larger. Maybe if I knit a second one Ill go for the medium size ;-)
Ive only added one set of increases for the bust and knit about 5 rows extra if I remember well. Glad I did too, or it would be even shorter. Gauge was good when I swatched, Ill have to look at it now..
I knit the top (flat) on 4 mm, and then I switched to 4.5 mm after joining to compensate for my tighter knit rounds. For the lace section I just went down one size to 3.5 mm.


Now, next step is probably the sleeves, I dont feel brave enough to pick up all those neck stitches yet. Still wondering if Ill do plain sleeves or leave with the original lace section. Anybody did their sleeves in st st and have pictues ? Aurelia615, did you do any progress on yours ?
