On to the second sleeve and some kitty WWF!

I finished the first sleeve on Cleaves.

I made it a bit longer than the pattern calls for. Why? Cuz I read it wrong! :P I read, "Cont in stockinette st until work measures 22.25 inches." It really says, "Cont in stockinette st until work measures 22.25 inches from beg." Oh well. But in all actuality, I would rather the sleeves be too long than too short. I rather like the way it bunches up... :)

I started on the second sleeve today as well while I was at Yarns Etc. Yeah... I went back to contemplate what yarn to get my Secret Pal and couldn't decide so I had a seat and pulled out my needles.

When I got home, the cats were wrestling!

They kept this up for about a half hour at least while I was home. Lucky me, their wrestling kept them from chasing my yarn... which they had both been doing all morning. :)
