First here’s the progress by the end of Thursday night:
and now after Friday night:
Whee! I finished the tunic last night! With the time I had available to knit (since Yannick was working and the kids were sleeping) I parked myself in front of the Olympics, finished the last sleeve, wove in a few dozen ends then picked-up and knit the collar. I even had time to let it soak in some Eucalan then put it up to block before I went to bed.
I’m debating sewing down the inside edges of the collar. I think I’ll try it on Jakob first to see how it looks, since he’s about the size to wear it.
Chinchillas! (Or random little pixillated rodents)
And a sleeve.
So by Friday night the main part of the gift (and my Knitting Olympics challenge) was complete. All that remains for my official challenge is to knit, stuff and complete a chinchilla toy to go with the tunic. Do you think I’ll make it in time? The Olympics end tomorrow…
