Well, progress is progress- it's somewhat hard to see that I'm progressing and I'm really over this pattern. (Typical pattern ennui.)
It's a little hard to feel like this is Olympic knitting, because when I knit, the Olympics are airing repeats, as most of the events of the day have already happened and I know the results. I usually knit in the afternoons and evenings when my little "big guy" is sleeping. I really haven't actually watched any Olympics and knit at the same time.
I've been really proud of Canada so far- we've done really well. Although, there's a little part of me would like us to pick up the medal winning pace again. ;-) Hopefully we'll add another medal today in figure skating. NO PRESSURE Patrick Chan.... except.... PRESSURE PRESSURE PRESSURE.
I really regret not noting how far I was prior to the Olympics on this blanket. But Progress is being made.
Here's BEFORE the start....
Earlier this week.....
I'm at about 22" into this project. I started with 6 balls of yarn to work through, and am down to 3.5 remaining. I'm working at a decent pace but will need to continue knitting furiously if I hope to have a gold medal finish.
You can keep updated on my progress at this link, which gets updated earlier than this blog. (Sorry- need to knit frequently, so updates are going to be brief.)
GO CANADA GO!
