Well, that was actually interesting. I wasn't sure if I could finish in time, and I did, so that's nice. Without some sort of reason though (even if it's a self-imposed reason like the Knitting Olympics) I don't enjoy knitting flat-out on only one thing. It's the only one thing part, I think, that's the real problem. I usually have two or three projects going at once (at a minimum) so when I get bored I can switch. And I get bored very easily.

I also taught myself to cable without a cable needle, which I don't think I would have done without the deadline pressure, so that's a Useful Skill.

On the down side, I think the thing's still too short. I'm constantly pulling it down. Yes, I wanted a shorter version originally but I think I was wrong. It's a major undertaking to lengthen it, with the way it's designed, so I think I'll leave it for a bit and see if I acclimatize. R:tAG says I don't look any more like a bowling pin than usual. What a relief.

    Congrats on the completion! It looks fabulous, and you're inspiring me to some post-Olympic sweater knitting.

    You really don't look like a bowling pin. Or anything else except you. I'm so shutting up now.

    Does my ass make the sweater look big, though? :)

    Wow! You did that just over the olympics? It looks so good! Great work. I wonder how many kick ass fingerless gloves you could have made during that time too... hmmmm...

    Psst... I love my fingerless gloves :o)

    Your project is very much like mine, and mine seems a bit short also. But that's when I am wearing pants. It is different with a dress. But maybe I just need to lose 20 pounds. I don't think I could day that about you.

    Great Job!
