A Knitting Meme and Some Hope

I’ll start you off with a little Hope.  I’ve made great progress on this panel.  And while I won’t say it is easier than Teresa Wentzler’s Love panel, I will say that Jennifer Aikman-Smith’s panel is less complicated and therefore it is much quicker to stitch.  I still need to do a rectangle of beaded rice stitches and finish off the border, but I may  have it done by the end of the month.

Hope Panel

My Knitting Olympics project is coming along well, too.  I finished the right front today and seamed up the shoulders, which means I got to sort of try it on.  I think it might be a touch big, but it is hard to tell when the side seams aren’t actually sewn in.  I’ve cast on the first sleeve, and I’m forging ahead although I am sure I won’t finish it before the closing ceremony of the Olympics.

And for a bit of fun, I thought I would share a knitting meme I came across somewhere a while back.  I know that not all of you knit, but if you do and you do this meme yourself, please let me know.
