Ready to Join

Once I emerged from my medication fog and got Rainbow to bed last night, I managed to sit down with my second sleeve and finish it, so tonight I am ready to join the body and both sleeves and begin the yoke.

I am anticipating that the first handful of rounds are going to be tough with so many stitches on the needles. I just have to keep reminding myself that there will be fewer stitches with each decrease round/row and that it's going to get faster in addition to more comfortable the farther I get in to the yoke!

Ideally, I'd like to finish up the sweater this week, but I know that may not happen. My goal is to at least get it done before the start of the Tour de Fleece next Saturday (June 30), because then it will be all spinning, all the time! Of course, it would make perfect sense for me to finish it this week -- it's supposed to be in the 90s for most of the week, starting tomorrow!
