Knit a sweater in November - hahah that's a good one!

I am so out of the loop that I did not even realize it is National Cram an Insane Amount of Activity Into Thirty Days Month (NaCrInAmAcInThMo?) until I was dropping in on a SnB that I don't usually attend and someone mentioned that they were on track to knit their target number of stitches for the month. The person suggested that one could still meet a goal of 15,000 by knitting 1,000 stitches per day.

Right now there are some weeks where I might be lucky to get 100 stitches in. Luckily, I have been off since Saturday, and between naps I have had the time to do some work on Poppy.

I have started to do some decreases, and am quite happy with how the sleeve is fitting at this point.

I'm very happy to have reached the point where I can perceive actual progress on the sleeve. Unfortunately, I am wondering if my somewhat irregular "jogs" where I switch skeins are too obvious, meaning that I should rip it back and start over:

Does it look too Frankensweaterish?

I love the "jogs" the way they are!

This is only the 2nd ever Poppy I've seen--gorgeous sweater.

It looks like a design element to me. Very cool!

Wow! No, absolutely not. It's looking gorgeous!

I think the sweater looks cool with just one sleeve!

It looks awesome! I love the mostly black bottom and the stripy top, it's extremely flattering.
I also have a problem -- I've finished the first sock for my FIL's Christmas present, but he has 2 feet. So... yeah, I'm off to engage in the month-long frantic knitting activity you mentioned.
