knitted sleeves for Levi Jacket

That jacket that I have been reworking for a while. ( posts : one, two and three ).  So now I am at again.  The sleeves are getting a little too thready.

First I lined all the areas I want to knit in with Romanian cord just so I have something to attach the knitted piece too.I have four panels of the jacket I want to rework but I am starting with one of two smaller sections first.

 I am knitting with size 0000 double pointed knitting needle and size 10 crochet knit thread.  Some of the thread is way old and boil-fast some is new and mercerized.  I am just playing with different fair isle patterns with this but using the same color through out for the background color.   I am not changing colors within a pattern as I think that will get to busy after a while, but some of the threads are variegated so they do a little changing on their own.  I am also not trying to add a lot of color just sort of staying in the earth tones. I have not made much progress on this yet but I thought you would like to see the starting point of it all.  But as you can see that one hole right next to the cuff is gone with just this much knitting.   I am planning on leaving the Levi material behind the material for added strength to the knitting and for more warmth as well.
