Half Way There

The first fingerless glove is finished and seamed. I am very pleased with the result. I made it with one size smaller needle than called for in the pattern and I am happy with the snugness I have in the finished product. Just perfect for me.

Tonight I shall go out into the Village and party a bit -- just enough to celebrate the successful first half of the program but not enough to ruin my concentration for the second half.

Not half way through the games yet, and the chocolate is still holding out. I managed to find the Knitting Olympics shopping center and snagged some Lorna's Laces sock yarn, among other goodies. Now, I had an excuse to go shopping -- I had left my stitch markers at home and had to get some more, of course -- and all this other yarn just jumped into my basket. Well, I have to have Olympic souvenirs, don't I?

Oh I love the fit of the fingerless. You got the knuckly part just right. Snug. Perfect. Great job!
