Another Sleeve, Almost

Pink memories 
I finished my first sleeve and have gotten quite a bit done on the second sleeve!  Once I finish this sleeve, all I've got left is the neck band, sewing the sides of the pocket and weaving in ends.  Since there are no stripes and I only used two balls of yarn*, there aren't that many ends.  I hope to have this finished by the end of the week.

Remember last Friday how I had a theory that if I measured the sleeve length at the underarm on my raglan sweaters that I could just knit the sleeves without trying them on?  Well, I measured and they range anywhere from 17 inches to 19 inches.  Those were just the ones by this designer.  I had two Ravellos with two different sleeve lengths!  Clearly that theory wasn't really worth much.  On the other hand, if I'm ever stuck somewhere with only a sleeve to knit and no convenient way to try it on, if I shoot for around 18 inches finished, I should be fine, so maybe it sort of worked.  You know, for sleeve emergencies and that sort of thing.

*The yarn is Tess Designer Yarns Silk and Ivory which has 150 gram skeins with 675 yards per skein, so two balls of yarn for a sweater!  Also, I didn't have to alternate the skeins - they match!
