I can't get over how long it's taking me to knit these sleeves! One is almost 18" long and I still have another 2" to go before I start the shaping. The other sleeve is just past my elbow. One thing I can say for certain is that they are going to fit well. I hate big floppy sleeves and after the original mishap of trying to stay in my size, I started over with only a 42 stitch cast on. Because my arms are so long, I increased every 8 rows versus what the pattern called for and every 5 rows for the upper arms.
