I just noticed that several of the patterns in "Fitted Knits" by Stephanie Japel have you working the sleeves on double pointed needles. I really don't like working with double points, and wondered if it was okay to work the sleeves on 16" circular needles instead? Has any one tried it this way with success?  Thanks for your advice!

Of course you can do it on a 16" or on 2 circs when you get down to the wrist where it's much less than 16". It's still knit in the round.

And I do both at once.  That way they're PERFECT.  It's like knitting two socks at the same time on two circular needles.  Piece of cake (once I learned how to keep from tangling the two separate skeins).
