The race to the January Sweater finish line

I’m playing the waiting game to see which sweater will win the January title. When I learned Vera had more yarn for me, I went ahead and knitted out the rest of the yarn I had on the body, so right now, Skinny Cat is ahead by half sleeves. But I’m waiting on confirmation/shipping to pay, which means the yarn I need to finish it isn’t on the way yet. And I’m waiting on some 16″ US8 circulars to start the sleeves on the stripey. Those may or may not yet be on the way. I got an email from Knit Picks a few days ago, saying my order had shipped, but listing the date of shipment as 1/18 (Friday), and I couldn’t get a definitive answer from customer service. I’m slow on dpns & magic loop, and I don’t want to continue the body until the sleeves are done and I know just how much yarn I’ve got. I only  have 3 of my 8 balls left, and I’m hoping each sleeve will only take a ball, but I’m not taking any chances.

Either way, finishing a sweater for February will be a snap.
