Due to travel, I totally forgot to cast on for the Ravelympics during the actual olympics opening ceremony! But a flight delay gave me some time to catch up on the Urbane sweater. So far, I have knitted the torso part to just below where the armholes end. Woohoo!
This means that the annoying part where there are three different sections (and three things of yarn getting tangled) is finally over! It's knitted top-down, in the round, so it'll be tried on periodically to make sure it fits perfectly. I'm basing the construction on the directions in Knitting from the Top by Barbara Walker, which is very ramble-y but weirdly organized and quite sensible. The directions on shaping shoulders with short rows alone justify having this book.
I'm so impressed by all the people who have already finished their Ravelympics projects! Well, and also the real olympics athletes. I wonder if there are any olympians on Ravelry?
