great beginnings

...and stalled knitting.

i'm really good at starting a new project. professional! but i'm also good at running into obstacles. here's the problem. i have some increases on this sleeve, that i must incorporate the slipped loop pattern into. the part i can't decide about is how close to the seam will i want to introduce the loops. hmmm ....

the design is called "otto" and is from jaeger book #11. the yarn is jaeger's "albany". the yarn is discontinued, though can still be found on the net. my colorway is called "cheer" and is much richer than it appears in my photo. i made another sweater from this book several years ago, and it's one of my most frequently worn sweaters. jaeger patterns are very well written!
