Getting ready for the gold

The top secret knitting project is coming along quite nicely. I am halfway finished with the second side and I finally understand the lace pattern and the center decreases. That means I am making way fewer mistakes and I don't have to frog my work every few rows, definitely progress. If all goes well, I should be finished by Friday, just in time for the knitting Olympics. I still haven’t trained (i.e. swatched) so I am really hoping to do a quick training session just before the opening ceremonies. I am very optimistic about the sock knitting. Since I hate watching the Olympics I ordered 11 hours of TV on DVD from Netflix that should arrive before the weekend.
