Knitting soothes me...

I'm trying this cute sweater again. I had to frog it last night  Cry.  I think I pretty much got the body part, but now I'm stuck on the sleeves section.  How can I knit the sleeves flat??  I tried picking up the stitches and my needle wasn't cooperating with me.  As much as I love scarves I want to knit something else.  All of you guys have done such wonderful jobs and I want  to join in, but this pattern is kicking my butt.  I'm going to attempt this for the 3rd time.  I'm going to cast on again for this...can some one please help.

Carmello, for the sleeves, you're just knitting them from pit to pit, so to speak. You're taking those stitches that you've set aside from the sleeves and knitting back and forth, just like you were knitting a scarf. Then, after you've cast off, you seam the edges.

I've made this twice now, for my daughter and for me. PM me, if you run into problems. I'd be happy to help.

Just out of curiosity, why are people knitting the sleeves flat?  I magic looped them.

Yeah, magic loop is great for not doing any seams. (I hate seams). The pattern says knit flat, so I suppose that's why. But if you know how to do them in the round, you save yourself the finishing work. (That's a bonus!)

Magic loop is the name of the technique when you knit using circulars that are longer in length than the circumference you're trying to  knit.  I would imagine there's a video on it at knittinghelp.com.

Sorry to hear you get a ladder.  I have that problem more with DPN's than ML.

I actually finished this minisweater months ago but better late adding it then never.
I've already started a full bodied version of the minisweater and I hope to have in done in a week or two.

Done in Lion Brand Wool Ease.

I told my friend Matt that I thought I should add more coverage for my girls and this was his response: "Cover the girls? Nonsense! I think they are overcovered. What are you? Amish? Let the world have a little joy before you take their lives from them for staring at your chest."

I like the fastener you used, baigneuse!  What is it exactly?  A button made of rings?
