Comments: I was baking, and needed something to knit while I was waiting for the Banana Bread to finish.  I felt very Elizabeth Zimmermann-ish, from her comments on seamless sweaters in Knitting Without Tears (p.68): "Why not start a sleeve in the meantime? It will be quite a small piece of knitting, and can accompany you on trips, or live in its basket in the kitchen, waiting for any spare attention you can give it."  This feeling was increased by the fact that I was knitting with one wooden DPN, and one made out of Baleen.  :)
