Half of a sleeve

I already knitted 66 rows of the Georgia's Sleeves.  I thought it would take a lot of time to knit but that really isn't the case!  They are very addictive so I can't stop!  I almost finished the decreases.

I think that it is a great pattern for this yarn.  The colors are fairly dark so I don't think it would render a complicated pattern very well.  Also, the mix of colors is well balanced and oh so pretty, so I think it's beautiful in stockinette.   

The yarn is Blue Label Fingering Weight of Tanis Fiber Arts.  The colorway is Truffle (but I believe for now is only available for the club members).

I used 2.00 mm needles in my first attempt but started again with 2.25mm for the ribbing and 2.50 for the sleeves.  I'm knitting it bigger than what the pattern recommends (16 stitches per 2").  It looks great!  Thanks Ravelry!

Have a great weekend everyone!
