There's obviously no Gold medal in my future, because it's true...I....DID....NOT....FINISH. Two long weekends of traveling (yeah? so what that one of them was a knitting retreat?), combined with 14+ hour workdays in between them, topped off with a weekend filled with a wedding shower in New Hampshire and a bastard of a cold, all conspired to knock me clean out of the running.
It's a heartbreaking defeat, but I will not be daunted. I will not give up. I WILL finish this sweater THIS WEEK or die trying. The torso is complete and the hood has about 6 rows completed. There's also about 6 inches of a sleeve. I can DO it. I can. Stop laughing. So you see, I can't talk now. MUST.KEEP.KNITTING.
ETA: For all of you out there still finishing up.....a KAL and button. Because what's a cause without a button?
My thanks to the Femiknitmafia for helping us *ahem* slowpokes stay motivated.
