I have sleeves!

Last night I managed to attach the front and back of Sahara.

This photo shows the color much more accurately than yesterday’s.  So far Sahara has been a quick knit, since it’s all stockinette (ah stockinette… how I love you!)  Soon I will join and begin knitting in the round, which means no more purling (so exciting!)  I’m making the Small, the second size, and so far it looks teeny… but I’m pretty sure it will be just fine.

Phildar sent me an email informing me that (I think) they addressed my package wrong and are resending.  In the meantime, Wenday at Knit and Tonic has a new jacket pattern.

I will admit to having a great affection for swingy coats, but I’m not entirely certain how they look on me.  To add to the list or not?  Hmm…
