Blue Sea Update

The following are my updates on my current project. This is the start of the sleeve. I decided the cuff and hem needed to be fancier than what I started the body with so this is what I came up with. Now I will have to tear out the body hem and do that over. All part of being a designer as I knit. Anyone feel like darning for me? You are to start and end each color as you change patterns and not carry up. So you are left with hours of darning before I sew the center for cutting. It is a waste of yarn but there will be no pulling and the the tension will be even along the cut edge. Fair Isle sweaters still just as cool inside out as right side out.
Here you can see the tapering for the v neck.
