Camping trip with the niece and nephew was a success. I didn't get much knitting done but got a good start on Carin's scarf that I talked about below. The weather here is hinting at fall which makes me feel more like knitting which is good.
I spent some time on the evil sleeves last night and am almost done with the first one. I figured out an additional reason why the sleeves are uninspiring. Gauge. For example, on Carin's scarf 100 stitches is about three additional inches of scarf: rabbit racing progress! On the sleeves, 100 stitches is an additional row on the sweater: turtle-esque progress. I guess I'm just an instant gratification kind of gal.
