UPDATE, 10:40: I have just received word that a package was delivered to my house. A package from Berkeley, California that is of the right size, shape, and weight to contain a pair of socks. Counterculture socks! I can't wait to get home.
But this sleeve was!
The first sleeve for George took forever to knit. Why the change? Because I am desperate to get working on my Sockapaloooza Twoooza socks again. I have two worthy projects on the needles at the moment, each competing for my (slightly reduced) knitting time. I'm not going to pretend that knitting one is slightly more interesting than the other--yet I like the finished objects equally.
Now that the bulk of knitting for George is complete, that project can be seamed and finished at home. Pomatomus can come with me wherever I go. Heh, heh, heh.
