Does anyone else hear a whistle

There is light at the end of the tunnel, as right this minute, as of about 10 minutes ago, I finally finished the body of my Olympic sweater. 


Finally.  It took two more days of fingerbending knitting than I thought, but it is done. It totally slowed me down that the front and back are different.  (It also might be longer than I wanted, but I always think sweaters are going to be too long until you have to put them on over breasts.) This leaves five days to knit the sleeves, and I have never been happier to have stumpy little arms than I am right now. I'm proud to have managed it so quickly, and doubly proud that I am right now not telling you that I always intended for it to be a vest.    I'm relieved that it's done, and I finally see the light at the end of the tunnel.  I might really have bitten off more than I can chew though, and part of me thinks that maybe that light is an oncoming train.  Another part of me wonders if it's delusional that I haven't given up.  Sleeves are fast.. right?

How's yours going?
