So, I have finally [officially] begun and made progress on my Olympic sweater! I have several inches of the top done (it is a top down raglan) and plan to get at least as much done tonight as I did last night.
I am concerned about how much yarn I have though (only 500 yards of the ww wool in apple green and about 200 of the sw wool/mohair blend in hot pink.) It should be enough, but just...not leaving lots of room for error the way I like to. I hope that it all works out the way I want it to, maybe I should stop by A Good Yarn and see if they have some extra of that apple green yarn, but since I bought it so long ago, I doubt they will. Hmmm, maybe I can see if I can find it online....maybe I won't even need it. Let's hope for that.
I have to say that watching Michelle Kwan pull out of the Olympics really made me sad....it almost sucked up my Olympic spirit as ladies figure skating is the only part of the winter games I am really "into". I am sticking it out though....after all she has a groin injury and my hands are just as healthy as ever.
I have lots of progress to make in the next 12 days....wish me luck!
