It has been a week since I CO'ed for these Knitting Olympics, it's been a real rush, let me tell you! For most of the day last week my knitting looked like this:
















But I precevered and waited until the tourch lit, then it came, and it looked something like this:














And also this:















But I knit steadally and came up with this after an hour:















Now today, I stand (well, really sit) before you with this:

















A close up of the sock:














The Armwarmers(they're both on the same needles):














A close up the the first armwarmer:














And the second:
















Yes, I should be further along on the sock, but I had to rip the entire thing out when the colorwork wouldn't strech enough to fit around my mom's ankle, so I changed the pattern to one doubled in size Chili Pepper on the side of the sock, it seems to have turned out well. And actually, I'm in the exact spot I was when I found out that the sock didn't fit, it had taken me four days, with some armwamer knitting inbetween, to knit that far, but it only took me two to make it back up. Which just going to show, if you want it bad enough, you can, and will, get there. Just some insparational words from me.

P.S. did anybody else think it was so sad about Lindsey Jacobellis crashing? And the Candian who landed in the fence. I hope she's OK, but poor, poor Lindsey. That was really upsetting. T_T
