I've just crossed the halfway point for the sleeves on hubby's sweater!

It's very weird going from knitting one large body to two small sleeves, and having to repeat the same round twice. So, I've had to tink a lot and haven't made as speedy progress as I'd like! They're just about long enough to reach his elbows...

and my knee!

These felt so nice as legwarmers when I put them on that I'm pretty sure that's how any leftovers will end up! I've been telling hubby I want to make him some gaiters for his legs so they don't freeze out there... but I don't know, I might just need to keep them for myself :)

That aside, I'm hoping to get the sleeves done tonight while he's over at his brother's for game night. The race is on!

Hope that you were able to finish the sleaves while he was out.  Cannot wait to see the finished project - it looks beautiful.

This is really beautiful I look forward to when I can knit something this ambitious.

What a pretty sweater. I'm looking for the time when I have all the baby things done! Sweaters, socks, hats, shawls...then more baby things and little girl things!

Thanks for the perspective of the actual length you had done on the sleeves. When I am looking a picture online sometimes it is hard for me to judge length unless you tell how many inches. Hope you reach your goal tonight!
