I think it's important at this point in the Knitting Olympics to clarify my goal.
My goal for the games is to complete the New Traditions Afghan from Knit Picks.
It is made up of 12 blocks (6 each of two different patterns.) The games last for 17 days. In my mind that means if I complete 1 block a day, I should have 5 days left over to add on the borders and stitch the blocks together.
Thus "completing" the afghan.
What I need to clarify is this:
While the blocks are coming along swimmingly.......
(I have 5 and 1/3 of the 6 done!)
......the one small detail I forgot to factor in is this:
(all the darned finishing work of weaving in tail ends this pattern involves!!!)
So, I have decided that my original goal still pertains, as long as we all understand that a completed project means having all the knitting and sewing together done, but may/will lack the fine detail of having all the ends woven in.
