A Sleeve

Magical Pullover of Awesomeness 
I finished my first sleeve on my Magical Pullover of Awesomeness (AKA Il Grande Favorito).  Since I don't have double points in the right size (US 10, 6.5mm), I'm magic looping the sleeves.  I don't usually mind magic looping, but when I'm working from two balls of yarn at once, that's a lot of yarns and cables and needles sticking out everywhere and it's annoying.  At one point I almost set the whole thing aside and ordered a set a DPN's, but I decided to just suck it up and keep going.  If I ever do this sweater again (and there's a pretty good chance that might happen), I will definitely invest in a set of big DPN's, but for now, I'll finish with what I have.

I'd really like to get this finished by the end of the week.  Considering that I only have to knit one more sleeve and weave in sleeve ends, there's a good chance this might happen!

This is so beautiful! But, Isn’t it heavy? I have gotten away from bulky knits for the last few years, but I do like this sweater.
