A Sleeve is Born!

I've been working on the first sleeve of my Eyre pullover.  The pattern has long sleeves, but I've decided to make 3/4 sleeves for my own sweater.  I haven't measured yet, but I think I'm just about there.  I'll have to double check before I get too much farther.

These are knit from the top down after picking up stitches around the armscye, and while I like the way sleeves like this fit, I utterly despise working the short rows of the sleeve cap.  That, to me is the ultimate knitting torture.  Thankfully, it doesn't last too long and if I start them early enough, I can plow through the back and forth sleeve cap short row silliness in one day.  Then I switch to my 9-inch circulars and proceed with the round and round section of the sleeves.
