It doesn't look like much, but I promise it's progress. I have 20 g of yarn left, and my calculations make me think I can pull off one more repeat of the main chart, and then the edging chart. I may just make it!
Knitting tv has alternated between the first season of The OC and the actual Olympics. I am learning about sports I've never really watched before. Moguls skiing is awesome. All the sleddy stuff scares the crap out of me. The skating is really cool - and there are parallels in technique to auto racing (esp. short-track) that makes me want to watch more of it.
Knit on, folks. Faster, Higher, Stronger!
