Back to work after my summer vacation I've had far less time to knit the past week, but have made progress with "Alba" that I thought I'd share.
The sleeves are modified in three ways:
1. Backand front sections shaped instead of straight from armhole to shoulder to avoid excess fabric under the arm.
2. Sleeve caps made using short rows (see earlier post) also to avoid excess fabric.
3. Pattern turned upside down for shapes and colour sequences to blend better where sleeve meets shoulder.
Now off to finish the second sleeve cap while I remember how to make it identical!
