The first rip back was due to the fact that when I cast off some stitches to start the sleeves the center wasn't, well, centered. And I carried on quite the thing for several rows before I decided I should actually look at what I was knitting.
The second rip back was really rather funny. You know, now. In hindsight. The sleeves have a few short rows in them, but I read the pattern wrong and did a LOT of short rows. I got some crazy cap sleeves that were really very puffy. Horrendous really. Rip rip rip and now I'm paying more attention to what I'm doing.

I don't expect to have it done by Friday, but I need to finish it soon. My Aunt has ordered some face cloths (cotton yarn on sale at Michael's on Sunday) and I ordered some Cotlin yarn for another top. Better get busy!!
