On Rhinebeck and Sweater Sleeves

What I am now (up to my armpits) knitting is sleeves.  After my Tale of Two Sweaters post, I could not stop myself knitting on my "Timeless", and I finished not only the front, but also both sleeves. 

When I finally got back on my "Evergreen", all that I had left to knit were the sleeves.  I had the thought that if weather permits, I could wear it on my bus trip to Rhinebeck this Sunday.  I think that it could happen.

In the middle of my sleeve knitting, I read this post by the Yarn Harlot, who we all know and love, Stephanie Pearl-McPhee.  At that time, Stephanie had only the two sleeves done on a sweater that she was planning to finish and wear to Rhinebeck.  (They are a beautiful pair of sleeves.)  She is now running out of time, but I think that she will make it.  I have seen her knit some amazing things.

Since this is Wednesday, I will end with a quote:

"It's a strange thing, but when you are dreading something, and would give anything to slow down time, it has a disobliging habit of speeding up."
