Nearing the end.....

The end is near on my Gnarled Oak cardigan that I have been working on for the luvin the mommy hood sweater Knit-A-Long.

After many failed attempts at the button bands, I think I finally got them.  

(since we don't have an Oak tree in our yard, I chose to hand the sweater on our apple tree.....
close enough??  lol)

The details on the collar are hard to capture with a flash, but in all this fog I didn't have much choice.....but I am not complaining about the weather.  Last week I was on vacation and the weather was AMAZING!!!!!  So when Mr. Sun peaks his little rays out for a hello I'll try and get some more detailed shots.

And tonight I picked up the stitches on the provisional cast on I did for the sleeves, and will complete them before the week is out.  I'm right on track for having this sweater completed before the Ravellenics. 

What are the Ravellenics?  Well they are a little competition we are having amongst knitters on Ravelry to celebrate the Olympics.  We each compete in different events and earn medals.  I have a few things planned.....more to come on that!!!  Friday we cast on during the opening ceremonies at 5pm local time!!
