It’s more of a peninusula

Progress on the Rhinebeck sweater – real progress.

The body is done, and the both buttonbands knit, although only one of them is sewn on, but still, that will be short work. The next few days, I’ll be headed to sleeve island. I’ve got a full skein remaining, and about a third of one more, so as soon as I’m done here, I’m going to weigh both of those, split them in half, and start. I’m still a little worried about having enough yarn to finish – though I shouldn’t be. It feels like enough, but I figure that if I split the yarn in two, and run out, at least I could adjust the sleeve length to suit what I’ve got. A sweater with two matching 3/4 length sleeves is entirely wearable (at least by me) but a sweater with 1.5 sleeves is a look I don’t think I can rock. I’m off to meetings for the rest of the day, but I’m cool with being the crazy knitting lady in meetings, so with any luck at all, I’m actually going to have a finished sweater by the time I get to New York.

Is it my imagination, or does this seem to be going a little too well?
