Hey, I took a picture. See?
That's about 1.9 sleeves. I've got a few more rows of the second sleeve, then I can cast on for the body. Now this sounds like more of an accomplishment than it actually is, since they're 3/4 sleeves, and it's a raglan-style construction, so you knit to the underarms of both sleeves, knit the body, and then knit them all together in the round.
It's one of those patterns that has just the right kind of pacing to keep someone like me going. There are no overwhelming black hole sections (at least I don't see any)--there's always a benchmark near to mark your progress. I can't stop knitting it which is a nice change given all my UFOs. In fact, I think I'll go back to doing exactly that.
To distract you, I'll show you the amazing costume finds from TJ Maxx today.
