Chapeter 94 - Where a sleeve takes a very long time

I went back to work on Monday, which has really cut into my knitting time. Work itself is fine, quiet and a little dull, but I do it because they pay me, and I use the money they give me to buy yarn and cat food. I've been knitting on the Manayunk Cardigan by Kate Gagnon Osborn. The back went really quickly, but the now I don't have as much time to knit and this sleeve feels like it's taken a really, really long time.
The yarn is Pear Tree mill ends I bought at Bendigo this year and I love it. It's soft and lovely and the colours are just perfect. Because it was mill ends the balls are between 25 and 50 grams, but it's feltable, so I've been spit slicing the ends as I go along.
I've already knit a hat and jumper from this issue of Knitscene, so its proving to be very good value! Perhaps not by coincidence, my next big project is also from this edition of the magazine, the 
Roxborough Dolman by Courtney Kelley which, has no sleeves at all!
