Opinions Please...

This is my Lotus Blossom Shrug. I knit 2 lace pattern repeats for the 'arms'. I'm almost finished the second repeat on the second 'arm'. But now I'm wondering the best way to attach it to the main piece.I knit the first arm, below, then separated for the body and continued in stockinette. I have thought of two possibilities.
1. A three needle bind off on the last (knit) row of the lace repeat - this could make a bulky seam which visibly doesn't match the other side.
2. Kitchener the two pieces together - that's a whole 100 stitches though.

Any other thoughts or opinions would be gratefully accepted. This could make FO status this weekend :0)

Happy Friday.

You aren't going to want to hear this, but since the other sleeve is knit on, I think kitchener is going to be your best bet. It's the only thing that's going to match.

And just think - when you finish, you will be a grafting master!
