Back To Round The Bend

I wasn't real sure at this point when working the top of the sleeve, but all of a sudden there was an ah ha moment and I could see the sleeve tapering. I think this jacket has a lot of those moments. I have the pattern in Handknitting with Meg Swansen and from the tape. When in doubt, I consult all three of the references I have. I guess I'm not quite ready to read my knitting. I'm still dependent.
Love this join on the underarm. This is done by "sewing as you go" wrapping the stitches. I can't believe how it looks and I don't have to sew it when the knitting was done. I'm likin this.

I can't wait to see how this technique adapts itself to stockinette. But, not now, I got too much to do, rather too much I want to do!
