In it to Win it
So, like Aly Raisman making the shrewd call to drop a certain element from her floor program in the team final, I'm going to change the terms on which I will claim a medal, if necessary, after a last-minute evaluation. From the beginning I knew that I would consider the sweater "done" even without buttons sewn on or blocking. Now, I'm going to say that as long as I finish both sleeves, I will claim victory. Buttonbands and collar, while they will certainly be added to the sweater before it finds its recipient this fall, are not strictly necessary elements of an adult garment. I can claim victory without them, and I will, if necessary. I'll be finished with the first sleeve in a few hours, and starting on the second sometime this evening. I can DO this! Anybody want to cook dinner for me?
