Sleeve slog

Yep... I'm still slogging away on the second sleeve. Does anyone else have the same issue with second sleeves as second socks?

Sigh...

That said, I'm only a few inches from decreasing after the elbow, and then there's just a few more inches on after that. Then bands and buttons.

As it stands now, I have a very quiet weekend ahead of me. Could she be blocking by Sunday?

Best of luck. I don't seem to even get that far on a sweater - lol. I am hoping this year will be different.

Also - my yarn arrived yesterday!! So beautiful and so soft and I almost had to stay home from work today so that I could just stare at it and dream of what to make!!

Yes, especially when they are attached and you have to haul the whole thing every needle!
But you are so close so hang in there!

I usually do 1 sleeve as a swatch, then body pieces, then last sleeve. That way there is distance between them. But often it doesn't matter, my mind wanders when doing sleeves and I aways miss increases/decreases!

I'm fine with second socks, second sleeves though are my bugbear. For some reason while the second sock flies off the needles, the second sleeve creeps.
