Finally, one sleeve is finished and yes it is suppose have that odd shape on the top. The square on the top right is one half of the shoulder back and the triangle on the top left is the front left shoulder.

I would have gotten this done last week but upon finishing the last few rows I noticed that I had strayed from the stitch pattern just as I started the shoulder portion. Although most people wouldn’t have noticed the mistake, I couldn’t live with it. The whole shoulder piece was ripped out and reknitted.
I’ve learned that the most important thing to remember when knitting large lace pieces is to stop fairly frequently to inspect your work. Doing so might minimize the amount of time spent ripping out hours of hard work.
I feel like it’s all down hill from here, so hopefully I’ll get it done within the next couple of weeks.
