The Great and Wonderful USOC has apologized to Ravelry and the knitting community for smiting knitters in our quest for olympic knitting greatness. Just stay behind your curtain and let us do what we do. We're harmless unless provoked.
Now that we're done with THAT foolishness let's get down to business. My project, I fear, is not going to be finished by the time the flaming cauldron is cut off from its gas supply. An aran design knit in 90 degrees plus humidity is like Lochte swimming the 400 in a wool swim suit of the early 1900's. (picture it)
Knitting from the top down (of course, phft!) I have reached past the armhole join about four inches. I've been training with this pattern for a year now but the conditions are slowing me down. I know, I have to push through the pain to achieve my goals but my confidence has taken a hit. A good dose of men's beach volleyball might be just what is needed. You know, to get the adrenaline going. Stay tuned.
