The buttonbands are damp, but it's blocked and all the ends are woven in. Edamame is finished and the Olympic flame is still burning. *whew*

  • Looks great, Janice!

    Is it very warm? I have some of that yarn and it seems on the warm side. I hadn't thought of trying it for this sweater. (Don't worry, mine is another color, so we won't be twins if I decide to use it for this. ;)

  • Congratulations, Ravelympian. Take your place on the field of athletes for the closing ceremonies. Remember to wear your sweater.

    (PS - needle size is missing from the Needles line - 8 for the caston, 6 for the neck and "something" for the rest.
