I’m in better shape than I’d thought. But…
Tonight before bed I decided to do a quick ‘n dirty wet block to really see where things stood with my Jeanie. I need to get to 66″ and stretching it out on my lap wasn’t helping me see the true length.
I even dropped the column stitches that don’t get dropped until the very end, (doing a yo over them so I can keep going), and pinned the whole thing out.
The good news? At 114 rows in, I’m at 22″. That means exactly 1/3 of the way done.
The bad news? To get 228 rows (the remaining 2/3) done by Sunday night (the closing ceremonies) means I need to knit 6.75 hours per day.
And that doesn’t take into account the upper or lower border, or the slightly longer cable rows that occur every 8 or so.
I WILL finish. But I won’t medal. I’ll still be knitting when all the other competitors have packed up and gone home.

It’s looking great though! Maybe next Olympics you will find a project that is finishable in time.

I didn’t finish my big project either. Boo! I think our lives are just too crazy to finish big projects in such a short span of time.
