Sleeve rapids

I was knitting away on my Vitamin D cardigan. It's a top down, swingy loose cardigan that I am knitting in 4ply (fingering) yarn, on 3.5 mm needles. The body rows take forever, there are thousands of stitches, and it's knit flat, and we all know how slowly I purl compared with how fast I knit. I got to the "divide for the sleeves" bit on Tuesday evening. The pattern calls for the sleeves to be knit before the body, and I knit them in the round.

Woosh. Despite lengthening them to full length they flew by. Two and a half days and they were done. Now back to the rather slower pace of stocking stitch knit flat.
