Down to the wire

Last night I finished the left front vest panel, and then with baited breath, weighed both it and the remaining yarn. The finished vest panel weighed 110 grams, and the yarn - 130 grams. WooHoo! Mama's going to have a vest without ripping out the back! I promptly cast on the right front vest panel. I still don't think there's any chance of my finishing this by closing ceremonies, but I will be wearing this vest sooner rather than later all because I strived for Olympic gold.

And just because I like it, here's a close-up of our birch tree:
That's it for now at . . .

Yay!

What a good idea to weigh it; as a knitting newbie I need to remember these tricks!

Goodwife said...

Great job! And that IS a great idea to weigh it......I'd of never thunk it!

Michelle said...

Oh Sara, you must think I can just sit around and knit and eat bon-bons! Ha!

Laura said...

Whoohoo! Awesome! It'll be nice to see it all done! I have this really neat, though time-consuming method of putting things together, that looks especially good on textured sweaters. I'll call you, since I may be up that way Monday or Tuesday.

I love the birch tree...

Looks beautiful, certainly medal worthy!

What great progress! We're all rooting for you, go for the gold! (without killing yourself, sleep is good too).

I just noticed I had an inaccurate post date on this; it was today's post, not yesterday's! No wonder you all think I've got time to finish. What I would give for another 24 hours!
