NaKniSweMo Day 21 (or) Second Thoughts

I’m about halfway through the second sleeve right now, and so far I cannot see a cabling error.  This is a giant sigh of relief, but I am cautious to become too relaxed, since the cables have already proven to be sneaky little mongrels.  I stayed up so far past my bedtime that by the time I went to bed, I was too wired to get much sleep, and had strange dreams about all manner of things that have been on my mind lately.  From circus, to people, to fiber tumbling everywhere, I can’t make sense of anything.


I have a total of 40,208 stitches completed, with 4,452 in this sleeve alone (the total for the sleeves is 9,996, and for the sweater 61,582).  That sees the sweater at 65% complete, with November being 70% complete.  Yep, I’m consistently behind.

I really just want to be done with the sleeves and the body, so I can get to the yoke – that point when the sleeves join the body and it becomes recognizable as a sweater, when the end shows itself for the very first time.  According to sleeve 1, sleeve 2 has around 74 more rounds before it is complete.  I’m not sure how much more for the body of the sweater (I’m still 2 inches short).  Is it too optimistic to want that portion done by Saturday, so I can start the yoke this weekend?

I’m really starting to wonder if I can complete this in time.
