…about this Ravelympics sweater thing. I steeked it. And it was scary. And I’m still not convinced the whole thing won’t unravel.

Before steek:

(Nice and safe.)

After steek:

(Holy Christ, it’s all gonna come apart.)

Hot hot steek action:

(I shouldn’t even touch it.)

Hot hot colorwork action:

(Awww yeah.)

Ahem. Anyway. So. Let’s snag a peek at the calendar. It’s Thursday, February 25. This sucker is supposed to be DONE on Sunday. Cast off, finished, caput. Wearable. And my thought on Tuesday, when I did the steek, was that it would be. Except for one thing.

I BOUGHT THE WRONG ZIPPER A MONTH AND A HALF AGO.

Cause I thought I could fiddle with it and make it work. I though I could fix one side of a regular zipper and make a separating zipper.

Turns out, you can’t.

So I have a sweater with an OPEN WOUND.

Fortunately, I was able to get to Walmart and get a new zipper. It’s not the color I wanted, but I suppose it’ll do. And it means I’ll still be able to get gold with my sweater. Cause that’s totally happening.

Look for a FO post on Saturday or Sunday cause this sucker is gonna be DONE.
