No, I did not finish it in a weekend, it took me a few more days beyond that. Then about 1 or 2 months to get motivated to weave in the tails. Then, I put it on, and the sleeves seemed to have shortened to bracelet length. It was a very cold weekend when I was wearing it, and my wrists were so cold! I knew I needed to lengthen the sleeves then, and decided to lengthen the body too, and use up the rest of my warm. It is now super warm and cozy.
