Well I guess the Knitting Olympics made Time Magazine's - on-line edition.
"NO IDLE HANDS For the 16-day Knitting Olympics, some 4,000 crafty couch potatoes have set a series of stitching goals they want to reach while watching the Games. Charitable projects include making clothes for U.S. pregnancy centers and for tots in Mongolia."
Here's the progress on my Olympic event - the Nuptial Throw:
My girlfriend, for whom I am knitting this throw, is a color fiend and loves unexpectedness, like crappy frou frou yarn thrown in with high-end Colinette... HE!
Anyway, that's 40 rows and I'd guesstimate I'm about 1/4 along.
