Wow, I really can knit when I put my mind to it! I did take 2 days off because well, I didn't want to knit. I also took an extra 2 days to sew on the sleeves. Yeah. I was done Sunday, but finished on Tuesday night. It also took me 2 weekend days to get the sleeves done. I lost a bit of steam ;) I'm suprised it didn't take a lot of yarn. It took 348 yds! I added 3" to the bottom and still had to really block it out to make it decent. No waist shaping, but I did do it in the round so I didn't have to seam up the sides. I was way too lazy to remember decreases and stuff, so I just kept the extra stitches. It doesn't look bad.
I'm so happy with how Canada has been doing in the Olympics. I got my Olympic Mittens from Vancouver so I can cheer on my home and native land. Yay!
