I bet you didn't know that it is very common knowledge among knitting circles that you are to begin a project when the Olympics begin. . and finish it before the events are over. If you google it, you will find a number of online references, but a really good one can be found here. . .http://www.knittycouture.com/2008/07/11/dare-i-say-the-knitting-olympics/
I will be finishing the last blanket tonight or tomorrow. I have chosen not to participate in the aforementioned events this year because I plan to remain dedicated to the houndstooth cardigan/jacket. My goal, however, is to perhaps finish knitting the back during this time! I think that will be very motivating to move along and finish the rest.
