More Olympic News Coverage

We will now break away from the action on Cypress Mountain and take you into the living room of our knitter racing to finish her sweater:

She finished the second sleeve in a day! That's a personal best for her! (Many knitters crash on the second sleeve portion of the course. Some even fall asleep. The second sleeve is an especially treacherous part.)

It looks like she picked up some momentum when she entered the yoke portion. If she can keep of that momentum and get to the colorwork portion, she might still be in contention!

Her family cheers from the sidelines! Her daughter says "Pizza for dinner again, Mom?" (While it might seem unusual, that is a common cheer heard by knitters' families. Many highly trained knitters keep a well stocked freezer, for that "just one more row" situation.)

If she hits that color work section by this evening, and doesn't get hit with any more obstacles such as people needing dinner, somebody needing to be dropped off somewhere, or the dreaded kid-or-dog throwing up, she might......just........finish!

That knitter is going for gold!
