Well, after a couple of false starts, I'm finally getting the hang of it and have about 8" done on my first sleeve. I love the challenge and complexity of the pattern and the fact that it stretches me beyond the fairly simple cabling I've done thus far. The Jaeger yarn is a dream to work with, as well as very easy on the wallet ... I highly recommend it! I wanted the sleeves to be less baggy than shown in the pattern, so I cast on for size small, with increases every 10 rows, but will actually end up knitting a size large, to accommodate 'the girls' and my behind.
