Sometimes there are speed bumps in life

Also in Camp Loopy.  I was happily knitting along on my second sleeve yesterday, partway through the ribbing, when I realized that it didn't seem quite like the first sleeve.  Sure enough, when I counted stitches, they were different.  Different enough that the sleeves didn't quite fit the same.  (Helpful tip here:  when you realize you've made a mistake, stop and think before you frog.  You might still have to frog, but you might not have to frog what you think you do, or maybe not at all.  Take a break and then decide what to do.)  I decided I liked the way the second sleeve fit better, so I finished it out.  Then I figured out what I'd need to do to make the first sleeve match the second sleeve.  As it turns out, I only had to frog back to the very end of the sleeve cap shaping and then reknit the sleeve.  So that's what I'm doing now.  Knitting a third sleeve for this sweater.  I'm past the halfway point of the stockinette section and my goal is to be finished with the sleeve tonight.  I've still got a week to finish the entire sweater so I should still get it done, but I'm going to have to be more careful for my Ravellenic project - it has basically the same type of sleeves but my time frame is much shorter.  At least it will be knit at a larger gauge, though.
