I've been living out of a suitcase for three days, with two more to go. I moved to my second hotel of the trip last night, and was greeted there by my first (!) headcold of the winter. Sprinkle in extra-long days of work, and I'm pretty much wiped flat.
Even so, I couldn't resist a few cameraphone pictures of the now-finished Olympic sweater. That's right, it's finally done.
Real photos, along with a Mild Conceit Session, to come when I recover!

I'm sorry to hear that you are not feeling well. The sweater looks great so I bet that makes you feel at least a little bit better! Take care of yourself.
