Screwing up sleeves!

So, I had a late night pattern reading moment and made my Rolfe sleeves too long. But they knit bottom up and I had already attached them when I noticed. Ripping down is easy, but ripping up is a mess. Even worse when the ribbing is twisted. I cord to the rescue:
Insert the smaller size needle into the stockinette stitches 
Cut off the unneeded portion a couple rows up
Pick out all the random bits, unthread the running yarn. With new ball (don't use the running yarn you just pulled out, it won't be long enough) cast on 2 new stitches and begin icord, knitting the held stitches one at a time each row
Work an extra couple rows after all held stitches are used up
Much better. 
Going to the Whitewater Center in NC then a baseball game tonight, so I'm going to start some socks.
