A Sleeve Is Born!

I've begun my first sleeve on my Beeline pullover.  There are no "beelines" on the sleeves, so it's just stockinette, around and around and around.  I tried it on yesterday to double check the length and I'm almost to the ribbing.  I always feel like the second sleeve goes faster than the first because I know exactly which rounds have the decreases, I know exactly how many rounds to work before the ribbing, and I know which round is my bind off.  Yes, I work with a counter and keep obsessive notes, why do you ask?

I did start a new project the other day (since finishing the last pair of footies and the Ruby-Whatever-It-Was, I have two gaps in my knitting lineup if I want to start new things), got about five rounds into it and realized I'd twisted the cast on.  I started over and dropped stitches on the first round.  It's been frogged again now and will be sitting in time out until I'm ready to deal with it.  The cast on is over 300 stitches long, which is the main problem.  If I can get past the cast on, it should be smooth sailing.  I will not name the project right now because I will be knitting it, I'm just going to give it some time to think about what it's done.

In the meantime, I might just cast on something else today!

Three hundred stitches in the cast on. All I can say is good luck and it just takes time, patience and attention. Been there, done that (frogging), but I have a shawl to show it.
