sweater day 1

So i decided to jump into the deep end of crazy and committed myself to knitting a sweater for myself for the Knitting Olympics.

I have knit all of 3 sweaters in my knitting life & the quickest one was done in 3 months, so attempting to knit one in 17 days seemed rather daunting! To add to the challenge, I decided I wanted a cardigan, but wanted to knit in the round, which meant steeking, something I’ve not attempted before.

I cast on with the start of the opening ceremonies and this is how far I got in a single night – not bad at all!
