Knitting Pure & Simple Knit Along!

I'm so excited that I found the Knitting Pure & Simple Knit Along. I started knitting the neckdown pullover a few months ago and made great progress early on...only to come to a screeching halt when I got to the sleeves. I've had a terrible time picking up the stitches under the arm; no matter what I do I end up with gaps. I've tried picking up extra stitches, then lots of extra stitches, and finally ended up buying another circular circular needle to try using two circs instead of those huge dpns. I just hope that when I joined stitches for the sleeves that my M1 isn't too loose, in which case I would probably have to rip it out. Ugh. Anyway, I'm glad that I found a group of knitters who are working on the same project.
