Yesterday, one of the Olympic announcers reported that in the second half, they expect Canada to get some medals. I bet he was thinking of me. Stay focused and keep knitting, Brenda.
At this point, I have the back, one sleeve, and the left front complete. The left front was a quick knit - Friday evening and Saturday. But then I ran into a Sunday hitch. Too many social commitments meant practically no knitting at all. It was evening before I cast on for the right front. I am up to round 4 of the lace. It is at round 6 that armhole shaping begins.
Thinking forward to the end of the week, I have concerns about my medal-ing prospects. Thursday afternoon, we leave home to do a round of friends & family visiting. It will be Sunday afternoon before we get back. What part of this Olympic project can I knit in the car and while visiting? Perhaps not Graylina's lace - but sewing up and button bands I should be able to manage. That means things have to be blocked before we head out. With that insight, blocking started last night.
This morning, I laid out these pieces as they will be worn. They look great.
Remaining still to be knit - and blocked - before Thursday, are the second sleeve and the right front. YIKES!!! Can I do that? Monday and Tuesday for the right front. Wednesday and Thursday for the sleeve. That is the game plan.
I vacillate between wanting to escape this pressure and thinking that I should always have such deadlines in my life. Oh what I could accomplish!
