Ready, set...

Everything’s ready. I have my wool, my needles, and my complicated diagrams:

That’s all the numbers, and the patterns for the body and sleeves, charted out by hand… every single blasted purl stitch, carefully marked. Often more than once, when I messed it up the first time. But now it’s ready!

This is the pattern for the front:

I like the little anchors, personally.

Ok, I’m ready to go — let’s start those Games!

What an amazing venture. Better than Sudoku, even… I love the mathematics of it.
