As an EXTREMELY new knitter (I have just 2 finished scarves ever and finished those in the past 3 weeks), I had decided to learn to knit a cardigan for my toddler.  And I just so happened to start on it during the opening ceremonies.  What a co-ink-E-dink!   Wink 

Anyway, I've got the left panel done and am about halfway through the right panel....  So I guess, I'll throw my hat in the ring and post some pics of what I've got done so far.  Well, not posting pics today (I don't have my camera with me here at work), but maybe tomorrow night before the primetime starts....

Four days in, and already I'm in pain.  My back is giving me more problems than usual.  I knit 3 rows and decided to take a break (conveniently, I have a paper to write for tomorrow).  Hopefully tomorrow I'll be able to resume the knitting marathon in order to make up for lost time.  It might be a good idea to visit my chiropractor this weekend.

Make sure you all stretch frequently!

I've done my swatches, and am now feeling somewhat better about getting my Mariah finished in 16 days.  But it'll still definitely, definitely be a challenge.  The other challenge is trying not to start before the 10th of February...

How's your Mariah going, Crumpet? I'm knitting it right now too (not for the knitting olympics though- I wish I had found out about it in time!), and I'm encountering some problems with the pattern, even though it looks like it's already undergone a ton of corrections. First of all, the chart sequence for the knotwork pattern (Chart C) is off- it says to work lines 1-12 once, then lines 13-52 three times, then lines 13-34 once and then skip up to line 53, but really you have to work up to line 36 for the cables to match up when you skip up to 53. Also, it says to work until the sleeve is 19" and then place all stitches on a holder, but (a) 19" seems way too short for what's supposed to be a long sleeve, and (b) if you follow the knotwork sequence as written, your work will be more like 30" by the time you're done! That's what I'm noticing right about now, as I'm almost done with the first sleeve. I think it'll be fine- the sleeve includes the shoulder and everything, so it shouldn't be crazy long- but working from a pattern with obvious errors in it makes me nervous. Thoughts?

Some of these mornings and it won't be long
You're gonna wake up calling me and I'll be gone

Not to hijack this thread--but the Mariah sleeves are way goofy.  Have you c hecked the yahoo knitalong for it yet--there's corrections there that kind of help.  PM me if you want to discuss this pattern in further detail.  I can let you know how I changed it and what I would change if I were to knit it again.

I accidently signed up on the crochet olympics because they had knit olympics all over it. I started on the right day, can I join ya'll? I am a beginner. I've made mostly belts, scarfs, and a few purses. I am making a prayer shawl for my aunt. I had never pearled anything before and this is my first time. Hope ya'll don't mind me joining late, I was early just on the wrong thread.

You poor thing!  but that new project is gorgeous- I can't wait to see how it comes out.

I have about 16 of 25 inches done on my tote - it's not as challenging as I had imagined, but I have learned a few new things so I guess that's all that counts!
