Let's Go!

It's that time. The olympics. The knitting. Are you ready? (Cue that annoying Are you ready for some Football music).

I'm making Rowan's two color Voyage from Denim People using the pattern recommended colors of Rowan Denim--Memphis for the main color and Nashville for the accent color. Here's the picture:

I chose this as a challenge because it used cables, a chart, and a fine gauge. Plus I want to test the yarn to see if it will work for the hubby sweater. All that makes the pattern challenging to complete in 16 days. I'm still not sure that this is even do-able given how crazy my work life is, but I'm willing to give it a go. Ultimately, any progress in the sweater is a victory, regardless of finishing the item.

Where am I at? I've swatched, copied the pattern and blown up the chart--I can't see the small print! I haven't ordered the buttons--I'm going to do that this weekend. SO, here it goes.
