I feel like the Chinese government (no politically incorrect or tasteless joke intended).... It's just that I've found myself in a mad dash to finish something before the Olympics start.
The Baby Surprise Jacket
It's going well enough, but I'm finding it -- gasp -- sort of boring to knit. Turns out that large swatches of garter stitch aren't the thrill for me that they are for some people. I think the problem is that it's not entirely mindless -- you do need to keep track of which row you're on to work various increases or decreases, and I was constantly checking my progress, to figure out the colour changes.
There's one final step left -- the lower/front edging and buttonholes. At the rate I'm knitting, it's probably about an hour's worth of work.
As to the Olympics... my trainer and I are sad to announce that I have been forced to withdraw. I've got some commissioned work -- a hat and mitten set, some technical editing, and a design that's been accepted for a book. The deadlines for all three are coming up fast, so they will be my focus for the next little while.
I will, however, finish the BSJ. I can't promise I'll enjoy it, but I will finish it.
