The Sweater with Kathleen Dames | Season Two, Episode Seven : The Second Sleeve

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
