I'm Done!

Hi All! Woo Hoo the sweater is done! It is blocking now and I should have pictures tomorrow. Thursday night things looked pretty grim as Esther and I both had stomach flu (Bleah!) At that point I had resigned myself to missing the deadline. I was able to catch up tonight and finish today as Esther has been getting extra sleep. Great for her recovery and helped me get done.

You Guessed it! Olympic Progress!

Here's my progress so far. Things are slowing down a bit. I continued the sleeves in the round and am wondering if it would have actually been faster to do them flat. There is a lot of purling going on (not curling-sorry for the Olympic Pun) I tried it on and it is a little tighter than I'd like but I'm also a little bigger than I'd like. I'm hopping I can drop a few pounds before the next cold season when it will get more wear. I decided to do the Hood from the collar up instead of seperately and attaching it. I'm hoping my grafting skills will make it appear seamless. I do want to make a few more of these, maybe changing out the patterns a bit as they make great alternatives to sweatshirts. This way I can make my winter wardrobe a bit less "Gym casual". Geez am I obsessed with this pattern or what!
