Sleeve me alone.

I feel a little bit like Goldilocks trying to knit the sleeves for this sweater.

24 stitches (the recommended 20% of body) seems way to tight... Ow! This sleeve is too small!
32 stitches seems way too loose.... Oooh! This sleeve is too big!
28 stitches seems to be fine... Yeah! This sleeve is just right!

All that means that I've spent 2 days knitting half sleeves and ripping them back. I am off to the laundromat to try to finish the sleeves and figure out how to attach them to the body, and maybe I'll do some laundry too.
