...which means that I finished the sleeve yesterday. I want to thank the Academy -- I mean the university -- for all the sitting-around time yesterday, as well as some guy named Beau who sold me Season 3 of Mad Men, which arrived yesterday. When I got home from work and socializing, I was too tired to do anything....or so I thought. But when the Mad Men disks arrived, I quickly blew through two of them, and completed the sleeve. Now it's been steam blocked and put in the pile:
One more sleeve to go. And then, of course, the finishing which is no small feat. But it is (no, I wasn't kidding) my favorite part. Button bands can be vexing, but I'm a horse who can see the barn door.
P.S. Shetland wool rocks my world so hard I can hardly stand it. Small needles, whatever. I love this wool and the fabric it creates.
