Fibers on Friday: We have a sleeve

So, evidently I was very delusional, or painfully uninformed, last Friday when I posted my intentions of FINISHING this sweater during our car trip to Massachusetts. Couldn't someone have warned me that sleeves take AS LONG, if not LONGER, than knitting the body of the sweater? Anyone? Anyone? Buehler? Brit Knitter?

I knitted for 4 hours straight on the way to MA....barely ever looking up! I knitted for several hours while in MA. I knitted for maybe 2 hours on the way home, but the sun was at such an unfortunate angle and was flickering through the trees in such a way to make my semicircular canals and cochlea and cilia and other ear related/vertigo related organs not very happy. All that.....and I didn't even complete one sleeve! I finished it up when we got home, but the seams aren't even stitched! UGH!

Oh well, I'm doing the best I can. I'm sorry, little Afghan child, for the delay of this sweater. I have the best intentions.


  1. your amazing...don't give up! that would have made me so sick to knit in the car! way to go!

  2. I'm BLOWN away by your fabulous progress! These are going to be WONDERFUL! I sooooo admire your talent, you crafty girl!

  3. Fab job, girl! You'll get it done in no time!


What's on your mind, friend?
