In training

The Ravelympics are less than a week away and I'm in training with Team BobaKnit.

I'm entering the Sweater Sprint with a finer gauge version of Hey Teach! in SWTC Oasis Soy Silk.


After swatching and washing, I like the drape and feel of the fabric at 21.5 sts/26 rows = 4 inches st st. Compare that to the pattern gauge of 17 sts/24 rows and I'll have a bit of figurin' to do to get the size right. Also I'd like to do something other than the 1x1 rib at the hem and bodice. I'll think of something.

So there's the challenge. Figure out the adjustments and modifications and knit a sweater in 17 days while I have a heavy workload at the office.

Let the games begin!
