If I can keep knitting at this speed (2-3″ per day), I should be done with the body in four or five days. Then I’ve just got to knit the sleeves! And the yoke. And the button bands, presumably. But that’s nothing so it’s almost like I’m done, right? I’ll just keep telling myself that. And I think I can get back to spinning, too, while I’m at it, which might provide a pleasant break.

    I love that yarn, and it looks especially good with the cat! Looks like it suits the pattern stitch well, too.
