Off the podium

This is as far as I got when the games ended. The body is almost complete, though I think I'd like to add another inch. The longer sleeve is probably too tight, so I cast on the second one with more stitches and stated increasing sooner.

My son got sick on Friday and was puking all day long, so that's what ultimately did me in. That and I didn't have a great start, not progressing add quickly as I could have.

Some positives to come out of this though are the knowledge that I probably could knit a whole sweater during the Olympics, and that I most definitely could finish one in a month if I so chose.

Getting there...

Hit the three skein (660 yard) mark early Sunday morning. I managed to about double the length after furious knitting Friday through Sunday night. I'll probably wet and hang the body to see if it grows to the required length Monday night.

More progress

Two skeins in. And miles to go before I sleep.
