I realized, as I was digging through my yarn bag, that I have a full ball and a quarter of Morwenna's "Elements" on Uraguay single-ply! So that's going to be my main yarn, with lots of brights and browns thrown in. Because I LOVE stripes.
I'm doing a few different things this go-round.
First, I'm following the directions for cast-on this time, and made sure to do long-tail cast on. This is so you can knit up stitches to lengthen the sleeves, and you won't be able to detect the join at all.
Second, I'm placing markers every [K] stitches. This is mainly because I hate counting stitches, especially when I'm watching TV while knitting. So this way, I know I'm done with my decreases when I've eliminated the markers on either side of my decrease-mark stitch. Then, when I do my increases, I'll just keep adding in markers after I increase [K] stitches on either side of the marked stitch. Does that make sense? It'll be a hell of a lot easier than having to count hundreds of stitches every time, and the markers will coincide with the Key Number.
And now I'm going to try to catch up on LOST while I knit - abc.com has all the seasons up on their player right now!
