I'm like one of those athletes who does fantastically at the European and World championships but just flops when the Olympics come around. I knocked a sweater out in three weeks before the Knitting Olympics and I've just finished another one in two. I put the final touches to the neckband and grafted the underarms at Bluestockings this evening and then tried it on to general acclaim. I'm so pleased with how this worked out. The fit is great, I really like the 3/4 length sleeves and I love the picot edging at the hems. And it's so warm and cosy - I'm so glad I finished it before the weather got any warmer.
