So not only did I *meet* my original goal for the knitting Olympics, but I surpassed it! I completed my sweater in ONE WEEK flat!  I am still a little stunned I managed this – the long weekend at the start of the Olympics sure helped a lot with that though!  It does still need buttons, but thiose are coming in the mail and to me, it’s done to the extent I’d envisioned! Here’s my kiddo modelling it:
One-Week Sweater

So with the sweater being done at the end of week one & a touch over a week left to go, I picked up a languishing project and finished up a toy for my niece.  Technically it should have been in the WIP dancing category only, but I submitted it to skele-gurumi before reading the limitations of WIP dancing, oops!  So on ravelry, it’s a skele-gurumi, but I’m celebrating both here – it’s my blog after all! 😉

I also cast on for a sweater for my niece!  I made excellent progress on this, falling short of a finished object by one sleeve – I choose family time outside on the final weekend over knitting & think I made the wise choice! 😉 The sweater will be ready in plenty of time for her birthday!
