I’ve been reading a lot of knitting blogs this week, and apparently that’s where you go when you knit sleeves. I think the idea behind the name is that sleeves take so damn long to knit you feel like you’re stuck on them–stuck on Sleeve Island. I may be marooned on Sleeve Island, since last night I unraveled about nine inches of the first sleeve, due to a too-tight wrist and a baggy elbow.

But I told myslef that if it’s worth doing and giving myself carpal tunnel syndrome, it’s worth doing right. So I’ll start over tomorrow night, and until further notice be on Sleeve Island. Maybe there will be caabana boys!
