Olympic knitting update!

I'm keeping up with my Olympics knitting so far! I'm so close to being done with the body. Out of 7 different handspun skeins I'm on number 6! I really hope I have enough - I don't want to have to spin more. I think I'll just make it!

Here it is so far:

Olympic knitting

In other knitting news - I participated in a sock swap on Sarah's blog. I got mine from Michelle and they are so great! She sent a sweet package of goodies too:

Valentines day swap~

I was knitting for Jake - and here are the awesome socks I made for him:
Guitar Man socks

Pattern: Guitar Man socks by Rebecca Mercier
Yarn: Happy Feet
Needles: Size 2US
Mods: I only did 5 repeats instead of 8 - because man these would have been huge!

It was also time for the doggies to get their haircuts! I love freshly cut doggies - and they are so exhausted after they get back from their haircuts they sleep the rest of the day! They both look kind of annoyed here because I woke them up to take their pictures!

The dogs look great. You have a good groomer!

And your Olympic knitting is awesome. I'm supposed to be doing some Ravelympics projects but I've been so busy for the past two weeks that I only just started working on the sleeves for a previous project. I wish you luck on finishing in time!

Your boys are very handsome!
Receiving a pair of hand knit socks is one of the best gifts ever. Such warmth and coziness that SOMEONE ELSE knit for YOU!
And your sweater looks great. The colors are blending really well. I look forward to seeing it at the end of the Olympics.
