Knitting, Dogs and More: Olympic progress!

Olympic progress!

This picture cracks me up because it without a reference you can't tell the measurements. It's about 12" long and 19" wide. It folds a bit so you can't see the whole width but it kind of looks like a sock. I made a few changes to the pattern. I may not put in the pockets but if I decide I want them will do it when the sweater is done. I think the pockets would add unnecessary padding to my hips but would be kind of fun. There is also a strip of garter stitches near the pocket. I didn't want to put those in because of how different and stretchy garter stitch can be. Anyway, it looks like a have a good start but for the next few days I won't be able to work on it. That's why I came out charging when the flame was lit.

I also want to dedicate my efforts and medal (if I complete this) to Michelle Kwan. She showed such grace and true sportsmanship these past few days. It's a small gesture but heartfelt appreciation of her wonderful character.

Ooohh, pretty! I love the pattern. And you've made a ton of progress! I agree about Michelle Kwan. You could tell how disappointed she was, but she handled it very gracefully.
