Working the sleeves

Hi there!

I started my duster last Saturday, and I've got the top done and now I'm working the skirt. However, I was wondering....has anybody tried picking up stitches around the armhole and working the sleeves down from the body in the round? I absolutely hate sleeves that are too long (I usually make 3/4 sleeves because I don't like them around my wrists) and I usually have a hard time gauging how long to make them when I start at the bottom. I have Barbara Walker's book Knitting from the Top and I think I'll check that and see if I can figure a way to work those sleeves. Does it sound doable?
