Sahara is almost completely done now. I finished the first sleeve last night and started the second one. Now I've just got to get that one knit and the neckband knit and the sweater is all done. I've even been good and have woven in the ends as I go so that I don't have to worry about the finishing at the very end, aside from two or three neckband ends.
Come on, Sahara! I'm ready to wear you!
PS: I'm starting to feel more human now. Still coughing and snotty, but no more fever and I went back to work.
