I just finished my first sleeve (I started a sleeve as a "swatch") and I am really enjoying the pattern. I'm using Classic Silk by Classic Elite (50% cotton, 30% silk, 20% nylon) in a sort of brown-paper-bag colour. My gauge is not-quite-right, but my sleeve blocked well (no more Michelin man!) and to a size between the smallest and the next one up, which is the perfect size for me. :)
Last night I cast on the back, because I needed some mindlessness, and 2" of ribbing on almost 100 stitches is definitely mindless.
I've just been wondering if the stripes end up matching up at the shoulders? I mean, the sleeve cap is stripey, so is the body, do said stripes match up? I think they should.... I shortened the sleeves (only 2" of ribbing) but because I only took that out of the ribbing, not by eliminating any stripes, it should be okay. I think.
