Down To The Wire

I knitted and knitted this afternoon and I finished the first sleeve of the Aran sweater. There are bobbles around the "cuff". I started with 31 stitches, increased to 32 after the cuff to accommodate the honey comb four stitch cable in the center of the sleeve. There is moss stitch on the sides of the cable and I increased to 52 stitches in the 13 inches of the sleeve length. I am using size 8 needles and worsted weight yarn so it goes fast.

I hope to have a photo of BOTH sleeves tomorrow.

Will I finish this sweater by March 31st?

Kristie and I walked for 1 1/2 hours in the cool (60 degrees) STRONG WIND at the beach this evening. That's our usual time for our Tuesday evening walk. The wind made it uncomfortable sometimes. We tensed up our shoulders against the wind and I have a bit of a wind headache. But it was so good to get out and walk. Helps with the stress.
