Almost There!

I've finished both sleeves for my Eyre pullover!  I have to weave in ends on the second sleeve, knit the neckband, and block the whole thing one last time and it's finished!  According to my Ravelry project page, I started this sweater January 1.  I can't remember the last time it took me this long to knit a sweater!  I will have it completed by the end of the month though.

Usually when I finish a project I cast on for another project like it right then.  I haven't decided yet if I'm going to cast on for another sweater right away.  The third quarter KAL for ESK is for a sweater, and you get the bonus star for completing the whole thing in two weeks.  I'm going to give it a try and I've got a worsted weight, top down, raglan cardigan all picked out for my project.   I can't start it until July, but that gives me one month to knit another sweater in the meantime.  On the other hand, I can knit the Q3 KAL sweater anytime between July and the end of September, and while September isn't a good idea with school starting, that still leaves me any two week block of time in July or August.  So clearly it isn't crucial that I be ready to knit a sweater right as the sun rises on July 1.  I could also put whatever sweater I'm knitting on hold while I knit the Q3 sweater because it's basically a knitting sprint anyway - I won't be knitting much else during that time.

Obviously, I have some decisions to make.  I will figure things out this weekend and you'll find out next week!

If you're here in the US, Happy Memorial Day.  If you or your family members served in our armed forces, THANK YOU!
