Since I am both Canadian and planning to go to Vancouver to watch a few events, it seemed like the perfect time to hop on the bandwagon and cast on for the Yarn Harlot's Knitting Olympics.

I debated between setting a completely unattainable goal and a giving myself a chance by casting on for something a little more realistic. Ultimately, the charm of knitting a Dale sweater designed for Canada during the Canadian winter Olympics proved irresistible and I cast on for Dale of Norway's Le Massif (rav link).

I am 100% certain that I will not get this beast, knit on 3.25mm needles, finished during the Olympics. In the last three days, I've made it through the sweater's hem, also known as the first of 22 balls of yarn.

So far she's a beaut. Wish me luck as I stagger off towards 11" of tiny black stockinette.
