3 Sweaters in 3 Months challenge update

Dear Cynthia,

I'm writing quickly, because dinner will be done in about 15 minutes.....and I probably won't have a chance to post again until sometime Wednesday, after my Tuesday night exam, for which I am **cramming** tonight and any chance I get tomorrow.

Six hours in the car, plus several hours sitting around with relatives, afforded me lots of knitting time this weekend. (It is time which might have better been spent studying...though this is not atypical for me to approach an exam in this manner.)

I finished two sleeves, though for different sweaters. I have to say, sleeves for six year old boys are much quicker to knit than are sleeves for *cough*-ty-one year old men. (Please pardon my unrepressable impulse to state the obvious)... (and also any poor spelling in my hurried state because I am not consulting dictionaries).

I also finished the intarsia for the six year old boy's sweater.

I'm a bit "sleeved out" right now.

I'd better run and get a vegetable steaming for a side dish. More from me on Wednesday. Have a great Monday!!

Warm regards,
Laura (YarnThrower)

Ok between you and Cynthia, I feel extremely lazy. You both have been doing knitting marathons! Finished Objects and sleeves everywhere! I better get cracking...

Oh, look at all your progress! Everything is looking wonderful.

Anytime I go from a child sweater to an adult sweater, I'm struck by how BIG men's sweaters are. They take forever!
