I have happily announced a few days ago that I am done with the body of the Megillah Sweater and will finish the sleeves next day.
I wish! It turned out that the body was too short after all and I needed to add a couple of inches of ribbing. So I ribbed, and ribbed and got really bored with ribbing and looked for reasons not to knit.
Finally, last night I bound off the body of the sweater and picked up the stitches for the sleeves. Now I am working on both sleeves at the same time to make sure they will come out even.
Got to hurry! Sweater is due to be picked up tonight!
I will be twitting about my progress on the sleeves approximately every 30 minutes. You can see them on the right hand column of my blog. Or even better join me on Twitter, look for chickenstitches.
