The Olympics Approacheth

I was kind of hoping to brag about another Olympic sweater at the end of February, but that's not going to happen.  It doesn't seem right considering that the status of the my last Olympic Sweater remains unfinished.  Sad but true.  I'm on attempt three or four (I lost count) of the sleeves, this time being work simultaneously.  I may be a glutton for punishment where knitting is concerned but for once, I'm hoping the sensible part of me keeps me from casting on during this Olympics, no matter how disappointed I may feel.

I am also feeling somewhat perturbed about not being able to upload photos today.  Blogger: always a love/hate relationship.

Don't feel bad--I have one WIP that has been in the Ravellenic/Ravelympics at least 4 times and is STILL unfinished.

And I was just reading an article that said the journalists already in Sochi say the hotels aren't finished yet either, so I'm not feeling any guilt here........:)

Hey Toni! Thanks for that comment. I feel somewhat better about that poor sweater.
I'm still thinking about making a yarn run for the intended Olympic sweater of 2014, but so far have managed to control myself.
I bet the reason the Sochi hotels aren't finished has a lot to do with lack of funds and materials. I, on the other hand, have lots of yarn in my stash for multiple sweaters if I get inspired at the last minute. But how many athletes change their programs mere hours before competition starts? LOL

Considering that I have a sweater that I started in 2002 and is lacking only the last 10 cm on each sleeve (ran out of yarn and have to spin more) I think that this year is still soon enough to finish.

As long as you can keep yourself from starting another huge project grin
