Keep your fingers crossed for me!

Last night, once the sick kiddos were abed and despite feeling like dog dirt myself, I managed to burn some midnight oil. I finished the hood of the Rogue Pullover and all of the cable section of one sleeve.

Today, after cleaning up vomit four times and bathing the Youngest as a consequence, I was allowed to sit back down to my knitting again.

This is the result:

The pic might be a bit blurry, but it is proof that the first sleeve is now complete!

I'm planning on slurping the Dayquil and knitting the night away if I have to. I'm bound and determined to finish this sweater before I leave to go out of town on Friday. That means I have to start and complete the rest of the sleeve today. My fingers might just fall off from the exercise they're going to be getting.

The pattern says to block the pieces before I put them together, but I may wait until the whole thing is finished instead due to time constraints. We'll see what I get done today.

I'm quite proud of what I've gotten done so far in such a short amount of time. Keep your fingers crossed that I'll get the rest done in time.
