I must be doing something wrong.

This red sweater is coming together entirely too easily. This is just too effortless for something I'm not even sure I want to make. I finished the front, or was it the back, I can't tell which it is since they are both the same, anyways I finished it in a day. Yesterday I made this

It's a sleeve, just in case you couldn't tell. Since the front and back are exactly the same, and the sleeves are exactly the same I now know roughly how much yarn I'll need to finish the sweater. I'm going to have enough to make this sweater if I want to.

If I keep this pace up I'll have the other sleeve done today, the other front/back done tomorrow and the collar done Friday. I could be blocked by Christmas.

But I'm not sure I want to. I'm not fully committed to this project. But this sweater is easy and mindless. I think I'm going to end up making this sweater because I don't have any better ideas right now.

Seeing as you're halfway to a huge FO, I'd say that's as good a reason as any to keep knitting! And good thinking on doing the sleeve after the front to guesstimate the yarn yardage. As I was reading your post, it took me a while to figure out why you'd do that...Aaah, very smart thinking, indeed. Yes, I'm in an egg-nog fog right now. :-)(Better make sure Boyd stays away from the nog. You know how blubbery he gets when he drinks.)

Wow, you sure have a lot done for a project you're not committed to! :)
