Olympic Woes

I'm quite disappointed in myself this evening. I had completely cleared my schedule for tonight so I could work on the neckband of Katy while watching the Ladies' Short Program, but things didn't go exactly as I had planned. I have apparently lost my beloved Chibi, which contains every single one of my tapestry needles! I couldn't seam the shoulders together, so I couldn't do anything. To beat that, yesterday, when I got home from school, my blocking sweater front had a big brown stain on it that it didn't have when I left in the morning! I was completely horrified! I have absolutely no idea where it came from, but it seemed like the worst kind of luck. Thankfully, with a paper towel and some dishwashing soap, I was able to get it out. Whew! Needless to say, I'm starting to lose momentum in my final lap.

So tonight, dejected from all of my stumbles, I picked up the project that I have been guiltily working on while Katy was blocking. I have been so admiring Kris' Sam that she's doing for the Knitting Olympics that I just HAD to start my own. I cast on yesterday, and I think I've made decent progress. I decided to make it 3 inches longer because at 19 3/4 inches long, it would barely cover my belly button! I'm about 14 rows from the armhole shaping. I didn't get as much done tonight as I would have because I was busy watching Sasha Cohen kick ass in her Short Program! Wasn't that exciting?! She's clearly a more worthy Olympic Athlete than I am!

I added length too - I think that model is pretty short waisted.

Sorry about the chibi. :(
