Sleeve Purgatory

Why yes, I went to Catholic grade school, why do you ask? (heh.) I'm just sayin'.

Wikipedia, referring to the colloquial use of the word "purgatory" says this: The word "purgatory" has come to refer also to a wide range of historical and modern conceptions of postmortem suffering short of everlasting damnation,[1] and is used, in a non-specific sense, to mean any place or condition of suffering or torment, especially one that is temporary.

They say a lot more, but this is the use I was looking for. The temporary torment of sleeves!

Copine is waiting patiently for hers - see her up there on Cherie. I'm about 1/6 done with her sleeves. Diminishing Rib Cardi is moving along quite a bit faster (mostly because I just had to pick up stitches to knit those sleeves). DRC will come visit later.

We had a much better week of Lacrosse, even though we played in a deluge on Tuesday and had several injured kids. Puck landed on his hip in camp and had to work through back spasms, we had the "bent" collarbone, and sprained thumb and tonight we had a possible broken hand. That's what happens when you give teens and pre-teens sticks and tell them to get the ball away from the other guy. Tuesday night they tied a Bloomington team 5-5 and tonight they beat Chaska 7-5. Tonight's game was awesome and they played like a bunch of all-stars.

In the meantime, Teen and DH are off to the cabin tonight. Puck and I are rolling out in the morning. Cabin knitting has been declared Empoisonee (now I've the knack of those short-row toes!) I've got some new yarn to show you and hopefully an FO next week so look for me later!

Have a great weekend at the cabin!
 
Sleeves can be a bugger!

Are those knitting books in the shelf???
 
Sleeveless Copine looks beautiful! Have a great time at the cabin!
 
Oh, that looks lovely! Do you not knit the sleeves separately? Do you knit up the body seams and then pick up the shoulder stitches and knit the sleeves down to the wrist?

I hope Puck is feeling better! Rest up over the weekend!
 
Have a wonderful weekend at the cabin - on your way stop at a natural food shop & get the LAX boys some Arnica Gel - it will help with the aches, pains, and bruises they are feeling.
 
As a fellow sleeve hater, I know just how you feel.
 
Sleeves wouldn't be so bad if there wasn't two of them.

Have fun at the cabin! Good to have your cabin knitting decided.
 
Your copine looks beautiful!
 
I like the copine as a vest!
 
Hey, I can relate. I went to Catholic grade school, high school and even, gasp, college!

Your copine is so lovely.
