Tick tock

Have I ever mentioned what a terrible procrastinator I am? Especially when something shiny is distracting me... something shiny, like handspun that just knits up surprise after surprise with each round...
I know. I know I said I'd put it away and work on the fox sock, but... just look at that sleeve!!!
 How could you not want to work on that? In the end, the sleeves ended up being just past elbow length. The perfect sleeve length in my opinion. I added 10 rows of ribbing in the Barn Cat to finish it off.

And as for that fox sock.. I have started it
I just haven't gotten very far....

Hey, a start is a start ................and you just HAD to have sleeves! Right?

The cardi AND the sock start look great!

I totally agree with you on the sleeve length. If they're longer I just end up pushing them up to the elbo anyway. Love the sweater!

Handspun is fun, isn't it?

I certainly wouldn't have been able to resist that lovely homespun! And then you and your mom had to go put it on your site! Ack! (*Must be strong. Must knit stash before buying more yarn. Must not let Valerie and Redknitz destroy my resolve...but soooo pretty....must be strong*)

Pretty sleeves, for sure! And I can relate as I was branded a procrastinator in first grade and that was a very, very long time ago.......
