On to the Olympic Knitting progress! I actually got to see a bit of the olympics this weekend because I was at my parents' and they have cable (I continue to believe I'm just fine without it, but NBC is the only network station that doesn't actually have reception here for some reason). I felt more connected to the Olympic movement because of that, and it has fueled my spirit! Despite the fact that my sleeves might be too short or not wide enough to be sewn together to the acutal piece, or even that my apartment is not blocking worthy, I still think I might just make it.
I have the back, a sleeve, and about a quarter of the front done already. I think there are only 4 or 5 days to go (right?). I'm kinda starting to feel the pressure because I've got a lot going on, and I read on the bus home yesterday instead of knitting (Memoirs of a Geisha, in case anyone's wondering). I can be so stupid.
Here are some WIP shots:
This is the progress I'd had done after yesterday. I didn't take a shot of what's OTN right now. Just imagine the bottom part of the back side of that sweater again.
This could be a problem. It doesn't quite look like this is going to work. I'm worried that this sleeve will be too small. I'm hoping that between the blocking and the stretching of the rib that it'll be ok, but i'm not really expecting that it will fit. Good thing I think I got extra yarn. I might be able to knit a completely new sleeve...but we'll see what happens. I need to knit more....must knit! NEED TO KNIT!!!
