Well, almost a sweater. Look at this:

That would be a sweater that now has two cuffs and two attached sleeves!

(Never mind that I don’t really like the sleeve cap shaping and am probably going to snip some stitches and rework it, or that the neck opening hasn’t been picked up and knit yet…at least it looks like a sweater today!)

This unlikely burst of almost-finishing was brought on by a very strict rule that there would be no winding of silk and tencel until the sweater was put together. Amazing how one little rule can completely change the game, isn’t it? With that one little decision, our underdog has pulled out ahead after all.

And now, I think I am off to wind some very soft yarn before heading out to spinning guild for the rest of the evening. We wouldn’t want too much discipline, now would we?
