Last night’s progress…
I’ve finished the left sleeve and am making headway on the right sleeve. Once the sleeves are done there’s only blocking and the collar, although I’ll probably do the collar first so it can block after and still be considered “done” for the Olympics. I feel like I’m making great progress even though I had a few stops and delays. Of course, I do have a second part to this challenge- the chinchilla toy. Even though I put in my official sign up and on Ravelry that it was conditional on me finishing this tunic…I feel like it is a required event. And it is using a pattern that I’ve never knit before and don’t know how well-written it is. Still, I’m sure it will go well.
I just found out I’m going up to Yannick’s parents’ house for dinner Sunday night, which means that any last-minute progress and my final photos won’t be shared until Monday when we get back.
I also just remembered that I have a 2-hour hair appointment tonight, and can’t work on my Olympic projects. I don’t want to take a chance on any of the hair dyes accidentally falling on the wool, plus I don’t feel like wrangling the colorwork while balancing the chart on my lap on the slippery salon cover-up. I’ll have to find some other knitting to bring with me for all that sitting time.
(p.s. last night’s progress puts me at 86.89% completed)
