I confess that I avoid sweaters with drop sleeves because I hate setting them. Like most knitters I hate seaming more than most anything on the planet. I knit almost exclusively raglans for this reason, but sometimes you really need a drop sleeve. And I miss out on these patterns due to fear.
But Kay over at Mason Dixon Knitting has a really great article on taking the misery out of seam settings (and also a really beautiful example of the Monomania cardigan which I have now added to my Ravelry queue).
She uses Clover Wonder Clips and while I am still skeptical of the whole seaming process, this might be just what I need to get over my fear.
