|Plucky Knitter: Scholar|
I used three circular needles to knit the sleeves instead of the suggested dpns. I find that when using dpns my gauge gets much tighter and I have to adjust either the stitches and/or the needle size. But using three circular needles completely solves the problem and I knit in a gauge that is consistent with the rest of the sweater.

Anyway here is the finished product...I am so pleased with it. This is one of these sweaters that I am looking forward to snuggling into as the days get cooler. And I will always remember how knitting this sweater, during one of my busiest times at work, really helped me relax after a long day. Knitting is magical, don't you agree?
