Knitting sleeves

I’m decided to finish my Secret garden now before starting something new and/or continuing on my Silver Belle.

I couldn’t resist adding the moss green i-cord at the bottom just to see the result.

But knitting on an i-cord to the end of the sleeve wasn’t my cup of tea. In fact I don’t think it’s very practical. Babies have small hands and very likely short arms (especially if the cardi will be something to grow in). Should the sleeve be too long an i-cord cuff will not remain on the wrist. So I ripped the i-cord cuff and knitted on a ribbed cuff instead.

Only the rest of the second sleeve and the ribbons to tie with left!
