just wondering... is there another place (other than the IK Summer 2004 issue) that I can find the mods for the long-sleeved version of the ballet top? i would love to knit one up with long sleeves, but do not have this magazine.

if someone would like to spare their copy for a trade of some sort, please message me.

Apparently in the magazine the instructions say to just put the live sleeve stitches on DPNs and knit a tube.  (Note: I don't have the magazine, this is just what I remember from someone else.)  I was concerned that this would cause too much extra fabric bunched up at the armpit, although I asked someone who did it this way, and she said she didn't notice any extra pit fabric.

When I knit long sleeves (actually ended up being more like 3/4-length sleeves, cause I ran out of yarn) on my ballet tee, I followed Option #2 from Grumperina's Long Sleeve Picovoli Tutorial.  It worked perfectly.  Once I had all the stitches on my DPNs, I joined it in the round and just did decreases every few inches as I worked my way down.
