First Sleeve Down

While watching a few episodes of Doc Martin series 5, I finished the first sleeve of my Garter Lace Jacket. For a garter-stitch gauge of 6 stitches/inch, the pieces of this sweater have worked up surprisingly quickly.

The marker denotes the last row before I started the armhole bind-offs. I’ll keep it in place until I’ve knitted the second sleeve the same number of rows. That way I’ll be certain that they’re the same length.
