Ravelympics Progress

We're into Day 6 of the Knitting Olympics. I've made a good bit of progress on my sweater. It seems like it is slow going as I'm knitting, but it really is growing by leaps and bounds!

Day 1

Day 3

Day 4

Day 5

My main concern right now is whether it's going to fit or not. I put it on waste yarn on Monday to try it on, and it fit fine at that point. Now that I'm past the hip decreases and started the increases I think I'm going to pause and try it on again just to be sure the waist fits. We'll see. I know it'll block a little larger in the end, so there's a bit of wiggle room if it's a tiny bit too small. (I hope!)

I absolutely love the Winter Olympics - especially the figure skating, so I've been enjoying watching the last few nights. I don't know how much longer I can keep up the past-midnight bedtimes, though!

Keep it up, all of my fellow Knitting Olympians! 12 more days to go!

I have become a die-hard curling fan.
Love your color choices.

Don't forget, I have a wooly board. I blocked my Ivy League Vest with it and it worked wonders to stretch it out just enough to make it a perfect fit. Plus it blocks the floats so sweetly. You can use it to block it when it's done if you want.

Wow - This is a work of art! Beautiful colors. Just perfect.

For trying on as you go... I have the Knit Picks Options needles and I ordered the 60" cable. (They also recently came out with cable connectors too). I use that for knitting sweaters and it allows me to try it on whenever I want.

Anyway - great work!
