A big, big island
So, really, it makes no difference whether the knitting is done from cuff-to-shoulder (one at a time) or cuff-to-cuff (all-in-one), once the "second sleeve" is reached, temporary residence on Sleeve Island is a fact -- where nearly everyone is susceptible to Second Sleeve Syndrome.
Mine's a really big, very long, quite narrow island.
Is there an official knitters' syndrome for second sleeves as there is for second socks? I don't recall... it's not talked about that much. *gasp* Maybe that means it's even worse than the sock variety. I've been on this island, you see... plus I'm crazy... and not just a little bit nuts -- flat out crazy. Let's say, if there wasn't a second sleeve syndrome, there is now... at least on my island!
It seems I've also, simultaneously, made personal discovery of the Black Hole.
Homework and other demands are not too weighty this weekend, so I'm hoping to quickly reach escape velocity and sustain it 'til I've made my escape from the island! I Will Survive!
Of course, a Black Hole of a Different Color (?) awaits. Oh, I think it'll start off interestingly enough -- all those short-rows on the front (because of the neckline shaping) to try and get the front and back aligned, maybe some shenanigans 'round the underarm/sleeve area -- but then it's going to be nothing but stockinette. Unless...
