Rounding out the last few days

 Are you watching the games on tv? Are you knitting along? Here's where I was 2 days ago with Florence. Coming along and really sucking up the yarn.

Here's where the sweater is right now. Better color depiction. I've split the sweater for the armholes a couple of days ago. And the front shaping is well underway.

Here's the thing. I'm now thinking that it's going to be far too big. Again. Just like the grey Yankee knitter sweater was last year. If this turns out to be far too big to wear, I'm going to rip back the mock cable sweater before knitting the rest of it. This Florence might be ok, since going to be like a jacket type. I just won't let the sleeves get out of hand this time. *sigh* always something new to learn.

In the meantime, and why I probably won't the sweater done by closing ceremonies, I started another pair of socks. Strange only knitting one at a time. Next time, I'm going to split the skein first. But once in awhile, impatient knitters grab what's close at hand, right? In the meantime, I'm knitting as fast as I can...and it's still much farther than where I'd been over the past 3 years. Let's see how much more before Closing Ceremonies? How are you coming along?
