Something to Attach the Sleeves To

Yes, I've started the body of my cardigan.  It's worked bottom up, in one piece and then the fronts and back will split at the underarm and be worked separately.  I tend to have a problem with my momentum once I hit that split for some reason.  That's why I started with the sleeves.  I'm hoping that having the sleeves all finished and waiting, will help push me over the hump when the bodice divides into it's separate parts.  I don't know why this is an issue for me, but I've noticed that on bottom up sweaters, I lose interest and become easily distracted when I split the back from the fronts.  I don't have this problem on top down sweaters and I think it's because I get past the longest rows (on a raglan, the lower yoke has fronts, sleeve tops and back all going at once) at the first of the project - when I'm coasting along on the excitement of a new sweater.  In a bottom up cardigan, the fronts and back don't take long to work at all, in fact they move pretty quickly since you work on one at a time, but mentally I lose interest.  Maybe it's the fiddliness of having three separate parts, that all have yarn ends and shaping going on, I don't know, I just know that this has been a problem in the past and I'm trying to make it less of one.  I'll let you know how it goes when I get there.  I've got a ways to go before I get to the underarm split though!
