I'm back baby!

I'm back in the game and not stupid! A nice raveler sent me a chart she had made for Guinevere and from that I realized there was no way I could get the pattern to work out with the number of stitches I had. It turns out there was a line missing from the pattern that affected certain sizes. Annoying but at least I was right, I just should have been more confident that I knew what I was doing and should have charted it out to begin with. Ah well, at least things are all set now. I'm not sure  will finish by the end of the Olympics but if I get enough knitting time this weekend I may at least come close. I've been staying up later than usual and am past the armhole shaping on the back. I still don't have my camera but I realized my husband's computer has a built in camera! He's been good about this Ravelympic push even if he doesn't quite understand it, so he was more than happy to let me borrow his laptop for a few minutes. He's a computer science grad school so it's tough to get it away from him. Here is a less than perfect shot of my progress. The yarn is tough, probably not the best for a speed knitting project but it seems to be working up nicely so far. I'm hoping to pick up my camera this weekend so hopefully I can get a better picture then. Now I need to get some sleep, it's past my bedtime again.
