Gold!I bound off the last stitch of the body of Forecast a few minutes after the Olympic flag was handed over to my fabulous city's mayor for the 2010 games (!!), during the live broadcast around a quarter to 1, PST. There was a hairy bit there, when I realized I needed to wind up a new ball of yarn a mere four rows from finish, but I did it. Gold!

This photo is crap; I'll take better ones as I progress toward finishing the rest of the sweater.

Things I learned:

  • Cabling
  • Bobbling
  • If I prioritize it, I can get a lot of knitting done in a short time
  • I really do prefer knitting to purling
A secret I kept from all the internets: I gave up caffeine in the last week. Bad timing? Possibly. But since I was into making commitments, I figured why not go for broke.

Wow! Congratulations on your sweater! Your accomplishment is even greater knowing that you got that far without caffeine! Hurray!!
