Those pesky left-leaning decreases

Fleegle has a nice post with photos explaining how to do a ssk without slipping stitches. Y'all remember my no-slip cable advice? The basic premise is the same - you don't need to slip stitches if you can manipulate them on the needles instead.

I have been using this to decrease/shape my sleeves, and it IS A BEAUTIFUL THING. Also easy. Like, you-want-to-smack-yourself-in-the-head-for-not-thinking-of-it-yourself easy.

Thanks for the link, this should be very helpful. SSK is one of my less favorite decreases too!

This is a great tip, although I actually sort of enjoy SSK. Weird, huh?
