Nothing like Olympic knitting to get you posting every day...

Here I am on my lunch break, modeling my sweater.

It's definitely a fitted sweater but so cozy comfy I didn't really want to take it off. As I was putting the stitches back on my circ's I started thinking that maybe I should keep the body stitches on the scrap yarn and pick up and knit the neckline. That way I would have a better idea of how much longer I should knit the body (since the neckline seems to really pull the sweater up and together). But I'm also beginning to worry about running out of certain colors... namely the color I was going to do the neckline in. If I decide at the last minute to make a the mid-sleeve version, is that cheating?

Maybe I should also mention that the only pullover sweater neckline I've ever done looked like shit. I'm kind of scared about that and kind of maybe just want to get it out of the way.

I love how some people are really doing the math on this and I'd like to set some real concrete (and realistic) goals for myself too but... the truth is I'm a bit scared to. So instead I'll just announce that I'd like to have the body and neckline done by Saturday sometime and the sleeves started by knitting group on Sunday. Especially since I'm going to be gone next weekend. It hurts to say that "outloud" but yes, I will probably not be getting ANY knitting done the last 2-3 days of the Olympics.

Okay, now I'm scared. Yipes.

So gorgeous! Your knitting looks so nice and even! Covet!

And no, I don't think the mid-sleeve version would be cheating. It's called improvisation. It's a good thing!
