No Time to Chat, Writing

Hey, did you know that it's National Novel Writing Month?
That's right, sign up and you, too can attempt to drive yourself crazy while trying to churn out 50,000 words in the month of November. I am trying. This may cut into knitting time. Is this wise to do with Christmas getting so close? I don't know, but I had to try it. Hopefully what I will have by my birthday (which is November 30, by the way, is a sad little novel that's in dire need of editing. That's the goal at least.
Remember the sweater. The one that is supposed to get sleeves? There's been a bit of a bump in the road. It no longer has a sleeve started. See, the directions say to cast on for the cuff and knit a few inches in ribbing, I did that. Then it says to increase over a few rows to the amount you need for the sleeve. I did that. I think it's too much of an increase. It looked like a mushroom. I'm gonna gradually increase instead. It'll be better. You'll see.
