my life as a crocheter & knitter & working mom

so far behind

I had made good progress on my Olympic knitting. Then I realized that I was knitting a sweater 50% too large. It would have been a 75" chest. Hubby's a pretty big guy, but he's not that big. So, I re-started yesterday. On the left is what I had completed (nearly 300 meters) on the right is what I re-started yesterday. I'm just knitting directly from the first attempt (the yarn's not too crinkled). I'm not contemplating what these means to my chances of finishing before the flame goes out. I'm just going to keep plugging along.

I'm drowning here at work. Too many meetings last week, snow day yesterday, and too much Internet put me way behind. I don't expect much blogging or blog reading until I can be sure that I'm above water a bit.

Love that yarn you're using! What is it? Sorry you had to start over, but you'll probably still finish sooner than if you'd have continued in the larger size, eh?

I'd like to know what kind of yarn that is too. It looks like some Tahki Tweed I saw in a NYC shop last week. I really liked it.

Good luck with the Olympic knitting. :)
