Knitting Olympics Update
I'm well on the way with my first-ever sweater. It's a very simple pattern, made up of two panels (one multicolor, one solid) sewn together to form the front, two panels for the back, and the sleeves. I took this picture on Sunday night and finished that second panel shortly afterward. I'm now nearly done with the first of the solid color panels.
Even taking into account blocking and sewing it all together (HELP! I could really use some tips and guidance on sewing the seams together), this is clearly not going to take 16 days to complete. Therefore, I've decided to add another sweater to my Olympic project. It will be the same, only smaller and possibly different yarn, for my younger daughter.
