Going for the Gold

My Olympic knitting is off to a bit of a slow start. After the third time casting on for the lotus blossom tank, I’m finally making a little progress.

Not very impressive, huh? But to be fair, this was taken before today’s knitting, so I’ve made a bit more progress. I’ve finished the first lace repeat for the bottom and have started on the second. The pattern calls for 5 lace repeats before going on to the stockinette stitch part, but I might add another, it seems to be a little shorter than I would like. Before I make that call though, I’d like to see how long the five repeats make it. The lace is also coming out a little looser than I thought it would, I’m definently going to have to wear another shirt under it (at least until I get a flatter tummy).

So, the progress for the Knitting Olympics is slow, but I am making good progress on my February socks.

As you can see, I’ve finished the first and am moving onto the second, which is good since we are more than halfway done with the month of February. The pattern is called Paul and Virginia by Jenna Swanson and the yarn is Stroll Handpaints by Knit Picks in the colorway Playtime. And, of course, the colors are not accurately represented on here.
