Red Sweater of Doom

So, I'm making this red sweater. I've talked about it before.

Ok. I'm nearing the close of the first sleeve and I have not yet used all of the first half of my yarn supply. That's right. I think there will be some trading at some point of the darker color, which I'm pretty unlikely to use ever again in my life. Probably, who knows.

I'm beginning to think through my next sweater project, which is a long way off, because, including sweaters that need sleeves, I have like four sweaters in progress. Five if you count the interminable fingering weight sweater knit at 12 stitches to the inch.

So maybe it's more like five sweaters. Sigh. I think I'd like to have the grey sweater plus only one more on sleeves before I start another sweater [1]. For the past three years I've always started a sweater during thanksgiving week and finished it before christmas, and I'd like to do that again, but I might go for just finishing a couple of sweaters. I might be able to get all of all my sleeves that I want to get done by then, but the other project is too long. Sigh.

In other news, I did some practice GRE work. The computer screwed up, so I don't have a good sense of my math section score, and because of computer screwing up (it meant my practice today was shorter, and didn't mimic real test situations enough...) I don't have a statistically accurate view of the verbal section, but I'm pretty pleased with how I did on this section.

What this tells me is that I can do really damn good on this test, my actual score is/will be an issue of endurance rather than anything intrinsic. Back to practicing.

[1]Typically the grey is the project that I bring to movies for knitting in the dark, when I don't have another project because it's so mindless and easy.
