One Arm Flapping

With great joy and relief, I finished my first sleeve on Saturday. You'd think I would have told you by now, and I'm kind of surprised I haven't. But there you go...life's like that sometimes.

Overall, I think it's looking good. I have all the usual in-process doubts (especially about my tension in this project), but then my other voice tells me it's fine and to stop worrying about it. We'll see at the end, I guess.

Meanwhile, since Saturday I've been playing hookey from this project, needing a break from the serious thinking and setup it takes.

First I made a class sample (another class at Red Purl is being planned for April or May) and then started working on a little something for Easter. I'll give you all the details when it's time...
