I have a sinking feeling…

…that this puppy isn’t going to be done by the end of February.

You see the tape measure? That shows how long the sleeves need to be, including the ribbing (65″ cuff to cuff, if you are wondering). I really, REALLY doubt I’m going to manage to knit that much, plus steek the front and […]
