Well, I didn't get a gold, but I did indeed participate, which still makes me an Olympian. I console myself with the fact that I am working on a great project, and I did actually get the amount of knitting in that I had planned on. Next time I will swatch better and get a better idea of sizing so I will know if the amount of knitting in the pattern is actually going to be enough or not. But it was supposed to be a learning and challenging experience and it was.
And I have a completely cleaned and packed apartment, and most of it is safely stored in a city 250 miles away, so I can't really say I was able to dedicate all my time to it. The packed, stored, and moved apartment is a far greater accomplishment, in my opinion. At least, the whole having a roof over your head thing is nicer than having a partially finished yarn fabric piece, no matter how pretty it is. On that note, however, the Lady is gonna get finished soon before I go nuts!
Also, I cannot wait to get working on Oliver! It's going to be absolutely crazy - 40 cast members, including 13 Young Performers (kids, aka YP's) and a dog! But it should be a lot of fun, too! Starting Tuesday!
