Here is my latest project and also my last for winter 2006. It has been 37 deg C (close enough to 100 deg F) for the last two days in this part of OZ so knitting will now take a back seat while I get on with some sewing along with more house renovations.

Has anyone used Anna Zilboorg's "Magnificent Mittens"? There is a step in her process which is thoroughly trouncing me. It is the method of increases used in shaping the fingertip, namely, "pick up and knit x stitches". It's not a technique limited to her designs, I'm sure, so if anyone has any ideas... help. I'm stuck.

I am making this sweater, I think already have the answer to my question, but I'll ask you guys just to be sure.
My directions I am following are obviously for an experienced knitter and as this is my first real knitting project so I got lost a few times. I finally finished the body and I am now up to the arms...which the directions convieniently say, "knit untill you reach the desired legnth." So, unless someone invents a device where I can reach inside the mothers womb then I have a bit of a problem. What is a correct proportion, if such a proportion exists, for an arm length in relation to the body?
