I'm nearly finished with the first arm but things are on hold for holiday knitting.

Quick Q: Other than doing the decreases on the opposite sides, what's different about the other sleeve?

but i attach that later, right? so when i'm knitting the right sleeve it's just the mirror of the left?

No, read the directions for the sleeves. The left sleeve has you bind off 3 each side, then on the front of the sleeve cast on 5 stitches. When doing the raglan shaping you will decrease at the edge on the back, but decrease 5 stitches in from the edge on the front. What is cool is that it makes the godron rib actually turn a corner. The button band for the front is made separately and attached, but for the sleeve it is knit as a part of the sleeve.

man, am i slow or what? sorry. :) i must have translated wrong because i was reading the directions so that the 5-increase bit was in a section included for both arms. so for the right arm i just decrease 3 on each side and continue with the "regular" edge decreases from there? thanks for your patience!
