Ok, now where was I?
~Rowan 29 Navigator knit with Lion Brand Cotton-Ease in black and white~
Now I've attached a plenty of sleeves, but somehow I never really invested any time in trying to get to the knitty gritty of really understanding the shaping and how it could relate to "seamless" seaming and "not so seamless" seaming. Reading a featured Design Workshop on attaching sleeves in Rowan 32 was really helpful in taking a new approach to attaching those sometimes pesky sleeves. Check it out if you haven't already. There are a variety of different sleeves with great pics.
And if I can ever finish it, I have a few bottoms in mind to accompany the little stripey top.

Wow...that is cotton-ease? Your stitches are so uniform. I'm about to sew in the drop sleeves for my green cardi...sleeves are one thing you have to get right!
I've been thinking about you and glad to see you are back! The knitting looks great!
So glad to see you are back. I was hoping a knitting project hadn't driven you past the edge of reason. And THAT is cotton ease? Hmmm...time to go dig in the stash :O)
Hurrah! Glad to see you back, Miss Froggy. Your new top looks great.
Glad to see that you are back....Hope all is well with you.
Looking good! I still don't have my personal computer and prettyposies mail set up, so I thought I'd say hi on your blog. That navigator is looking great. I hope it will be cool soon enough so that you can wear it.
wow it's looking great!
btw, good to see you. i've missed your posts!
Oh goody... you're blogging again :-) Lovely progress on Navigator, I think it looks best with denim!
Froggy, so nice to see you posting again. The Navigator sweater looks great. I'm sure you will get the hang of seaming the sleeves. Can't wait to see the finished product!
That is going to look fantastic on you!
Geez! About time. Where the heck have you been? :P
Nice stripes. I bet it looks great on you too.
Glad you're back Froggy! Your new sweater looks great. Nice stripes
beautiful work! glad to see you post. hope all is well with getting ready for Fall!
welcome back! your knitting looks perfect. great job. how much cotton ease did you snag? =)
I love the nautical look of that sweater.
Hey there you are! Looks good.
I love a technical read every now and then- it does sometimes shorten the trial and error part of creating things!
Amazing what you can do with Cotton Ease! It looks lovely, Miss Froggy. I always pair my new sweaters with pants immediately too (and it is often my pair of Levis!)
Take care, and glad to see you back in these parts--missed you!
Nice to see you back -- I missed you!
LOVE black and white stripes!!
You have done such a beautiful job on that sweater!! I love it!!!
I'm glad to read you again ! Navigator looks great and I'm impressed by your knitting very uniform !
What beautiful stripes! I love it, love it!
Yay you're back! :)
I like the stripes. I personally think the jeans would look best. Maybe with some chunky shoes. Yeah... chunky shoes... ;)
Hey, welcome back, and nice top!
YAY!!! Froggy's back!!!! (And the sweater looks great too!)
Its sooo nice to have you back Froggy!!!! The sweater looks really nice =)
Too funny...I just bought that Rowan issue for the sleeve article. Hope it helps!
Woo hoo! There's our Froggy! I was starting to go into withdrawal.
You know the obvious: the knit looks fabulous! Glad you are back on the 'net!
Oooh - I like that. I always love to see what you're up to and this is a great inspiration for us all. I missed you.
And I was wondering what happened to you...:) Glad you are back in action.
I think the blue jeans will look great with it. Great job so far. It's good to see your blog back :)
There you are! Very cute sweater. Seems like one you will get a lot of use out of.
Okay, now I feel better. I have had a sleeveless sweater staring me in the face for AGES. I have used my pregnancy as poor, poor excuse for not finishing what really is a task that scares the poo outta me. I starting attaching one of the sleeves way back when, but it went wrong, wrong, WRONG very quickly and I had to tear it all out.
Hi Froggy great to see you again! I went searching for your blog and I found another Froggy Knits! blog. Now that just ain't right! There's only one Froggy. Unless it is you in a dual role?
WOW!! Looks wonderful!! you'll get it done I know you will!
I love how the stripy's zig and zag. What a great sweater.
Missed you froggy! Looks like a fabulous sweater from a fabulous knittier!
