Pictured above is the progress thus far on my Ravelympics sweater. I've worked through the bottom 6.5" of the body. Today, I'm hoping to make it to the bust/underarm area. Last night I wrote out the basic pattern for a V-neck sweater. Part of this event challenge is not only designing and knitting the garment, but also writing a complete, publishable pattern for said project. My pattern will include two versions of this sweater: one "by the books" standard V-neck pattern for girls without curves like mine, and the "real" sweater - with alterations for girls who have actual curves, like I do. :)
I did have to put my knitting down for a time to cheer on Apolo on Saturday night. Ah, sport. I love the Olympics.
In other news, I got another RAK package this weekend! Lizzird, a Ravelry friend, sent me a set of U.S. #5 DPNs. :) Can you believe that there are still some needle sizes/styles that I don't have?! Thanks to Lizzird my collection is a little closer to completion! :)
