Here’s my Olympic guy. I’m not sure if he’s ready to throw a shotput or take off running into the wild blue yonder.
The guy is ripped! It must be all that time he spends sitting at his desk!
How do you like those sleeves? The good news is, I measured his favorite Norwegian sweater and this one is identical so far!!! It would really stink to put all this work into a sweater and have it not fit. I can quit worrying about that!
I’ve got 6 inches of the body completed. I need 18 inches to the armhole steek. I haven’t dared look to see what’s beyond that. The black stockinette is just riveting!
That bottom band is folded under to form the casing for the shock cord. (Why is it called a shock cord?) The knit 2 purl 2 rib runs up both sides of the sweater to the sleeve. It will show off My Hero’s great physique!
I feel like I’m on schedule to complete this on time. I’m almost half way through the yarn, and this is only day 7 of 17. This is doable!
I haven’t left the house since Sunday, but I’m just fine with that. My crock pot has gotten lots of use this week, and I got all the laundry done, so it’s not even total chaos around here. I am going to go get groceries this morning. Tomorrow I’m throwing a great big turkey in the oven. That should keep everyone from starving over the weekend.
And then it’s just all black stockinette all weekend! Good thing I’m being totally entertained by the Olympics. That’s what this is all about, right?
Gotta love this nut!
