This is the first time I've knit two sleeves at one time, and so far so good. Although there are times where I will forge ahead on one sleeve and get 2 or 3 rows ahead and realize I didn't knit the other sleeve. Minor issues, that are probably occurring because I'm a little sleep deprived at the moment. I also knit these two at a time because there is a very real threat of running out of yarn, that I confess is making me all kinds of worried! (On the upside this makes me knit faster so I can alleviate the stress.) (I love my donut stitch markers. LOVE them. Except they make me CRAVE donuts like all the time. I have resisted so far but the worse the sleeping at night gets the more the need for donuts arises!)
As also promised, I haven't touched the mittens since May 2 when I put myself in sweater mode. I'm terribly close to finishing them... just the thumbs.
I'll knit the thumbs when the sweater is blocking and then will allow for a little "indulgence" if there's time. (Maybe more mittens... who knows!) It feels good to be progressing on the UFO pile and getting some things off the needles. I can't wait to start some new things!!
