Look! It's sleeves!

I tried to take a picture of the back and two fronts of Storm, but...well, you know, crummy camera. I realized, after I took the picture, that I had knit a couple of extra rows on the right sleeve, which is why they look uneven. That is a big advantage to knitting a pattern like this one, where you are adding pattern stitches in every few rows: you can see pretty quickly that one sleeve got a new pattern stitch and the other didn't. With stockinette or garter, I might have finished the sleeves and then found out one was shorter than the other.

Just read your intro on KnitTalk and stopped by to say Hello and Welcome. I'm orig from Perry/Williamston, MI.

A hint to offer if I may; I mark the sleeves when I do them two at a time to make sure I put new rows on both before I turn my work. I've marked needles with nail polish too to help, but current project is on wood needles and I prefer not to mark those.
