There are many ways to avoid getting trapped on Sleeve Island. In addition to knitting one sleeve before the body and another after, check out the “War and Peace” method of knitting two at once (socks in Knitty’s example, but this would work for sleeves, too): http://knitty.com/ISSUEfall06/FEATextreme2in1.html  Visit the episode thread in the Kathleen Dames Design Ravelry group: http://www.ravelry.com/discuss/kathleen-dames-design/topics/3448816

It’s time to set aside stitches for the underarms. We will need to do so on body and sleeves. Then when we join everything together for the yoke, we will pair up sets of stitches for each underarm. Apologies for the NYC noise this episode - an early heatwave made it necessary to open the windows.
