How heartbreaking! I believe you are taking the right approach to move forward at a reasonable pace rather than rushing to finish by a deadline you set for yourself. The goal is to make steady progress and to enjoy it along the way, right? I'm so glad you can chuckle at yourself.

That's terrible! Fingers crossed that the Manos holds out. I'm rooting for a good finish on this one.

Ouch! That smarts. I would definitely not be laughing or finding it funny, this soon. I'm sincerely hoping you have enough to do the 2nd and 3rd sleeves.

'scuse me, that's "only", not on.

I always knew I didn't have a corner on the "3 sleeves" problem, but I'm sorry that you had to join me there. I'll take this as a warning about spin cycles, and be more cautious about spinning woolens dry.
As to your pretty little felted sleeve, I can on say: "What a nice potholder!"

I have to admit, it would take me a while to get to laughter on that one, and I might just throw in the towel! My sympathies!

Oh, I feel your pain. That must have been a bad moment of realization. But you have learned something. And you will have a great sweater eventually - one which you can tell everyone was the hugest undertaking ever :-)

It is a very nice piece of felted wool though! I am sure you will find a good use for it!

Oh no! But you are right, you just have to laugh. I wish you speedy knitting!
