Question about increases

Hi everyone! My sisters and I are currently having a CPH knitalong, and I'm working on the sleeves. This is only the second sweater I've attempted, and I'm kind of learning more about knitting as we go.

I did have a question, about the increase on sleeves. There seems to be about a kazillion ways to increase a stitch - and I wondered what everyone did for an increase, and what they found to work the best? So far, I've been doing a M1L (I saw the video on knittinghelp.com), and that seems to be working well.

I can't wait to finish this! I really love the pattern. It was overwhelming when we first printed it out, but once you get going it's really fun.

It's amazing to me how strands of fabric can turn into such beautiful work. You must have those magic fingers!
