So, while I don't have pictures to share at the moment, my olympic knitting is going very well. I finished knitting the first pulse warmer and overal I am very pleased. It's a bit tight, but I think it will loosen up with some blocking. I'm doing a better job of keeping the floats in my second pulse warmer nice and loose. I think this will lead to a much better finished result. I'm about 3/4 of the way done with the knitting, and I hope to finish tonight or tomorrow. It may sound like I am way ahead, but I will be out of town Sunday-Tuesday and Thursday-Friday which is going to cut into knitting and finishing time in a major way. I figure I'll need to be ready to finish the project (weave in ends, sew/cut steeks, add velvet and buttons) by the time I leave on Sunday or I won't be able to finish the project by the 26th.

Best part? I've managed to call in the reinforcements without even knowing it. My mom will be here on the 24th through the 26th to help me with the machine sewing. PHEW! I'll post photos of both of our completed projects on the 26th. :)

The commentator just used the word "catywompus". It made my day!
