Whatever happens to strike my fancy, but surely some sort of fiber content.
I see my evil plan is working -- my love and admiration for all things blue or teal has rubbed off on your normally orange-and-brown loving self! Carry on! :-)
I cannot wait to see the outcome of these my favorites of colors!
I pin my sleeves together with a saftey pin, so that they are "one" piece where I just need to drop one yarn and pick the other up in the middle. Not entirely foolproof if you leave of in the middle, but a bit better than just two pieces of knitting. Especially if you do it on circular needles.

Wednesday, February 13, 2008 No photos. No real news. Just more inches of teal blue sleeves. I believe I have 2.5 inches to go on those sleeves – and I don't think I will ever knit two sleeves at the same time again.
The idea is that you knit both sleeves at the same time and you'll know they're both the same length and increase at the same places and the tension will be the same on each. The reality is that I forget which sleeve I've just knit – they are, after all, identical blue swaths of the same stuff - and just keep turning my knitting after one sleeve. Last night I had to catch up 6 rows on one of those stupid sleeves. I just don't have the focusing power to knit two of anything at once!
The two front pieces are the smallest – and there is hope I shall start them this weekend. In the mean time I am thinking about lace. Silk lace. Blue silk lace. This blue silk lace.
I'm off to pour over my stitch dictionaries. Happy Valentines Eve to you all.
