The Final Stretch

If you’re competing in the Knitting Olympics, we are down to the final stretch.  It’s that last long race to the finish when your muscles are burning and you’re wondering if you might. just. pull. this. one. off.   All over town, people are asking me if I’m finished with my Olympic knitting yet.  


Will I pull it off?  Will I finish my Slinky Ribs sweater?  Honestly, I have no idea!  I’m down to the second half of the body, which is all stockinette stitch.  The good news is that stockinette just flies by after doing 2×2 ribbing for the first half.  The bad news is that I don’t have any car trips or uninterrupted knitting time scheduled.  I do however have a girls night out scheduled for Friday night, to celebrate a friend’s birthday.  I think I might be able to get away with knitting at that for a bit. 

To make matters even more complicated, I have a hat to knit for one of my 5 year old’s classmates.  He’s having a party and my 5 year old has decided that Momma needs to knit hats for everyone in her class.  I’ve compromised by saying I’ll only knit hats for birthday parties.  She informed me that he has a camouflage coat so his hat must be green.  I think I have the perfect yarn hiding in my stash for this one.  At least kid hats are quick!  Wish me luck in the final stretch!
