In knitting news, I have signed up for this:
This will require me to cast on a project during the opening ceremonies and finish it by the end of the Olympic games. I have committed to knitting a sweater (which I hope to wear on my vacation in April).
I think I can do this – I have chosen a simple pattern that should be a quick knit, but it will take a lot of my free time and I will need to knit on my lunch hours. Tonight I will focus on getting my work area organized for maximum efficiency!
Update (May 11): I did not finish for the Olympics, but I did finish the sweater in time for my vacation. It was a big hit with my fellow knitters!
