Superfine Merino

I knitted this on my SK830(Fine Gauge) machine. I used 4 strands of 2/48's and 2 strands of 2/60. Three different colours. The yarn has a super handle, soft and smooth. The yarn is also 11 years old! All it has done is sit on my shelves all this time. It has not deteriorated at all. I haven't had it 11 years but that is it's date of manufacture.

I have used my now usual set in sleeve style. I knit a 'half raglan' for set in sleeves. I find it fits the best and looks the best. I have tried nurmerous times to use a more convential curved sleeve head but do not like the result.
