olympic progress, day 10

Yes! I finished a sleeve. Boy that took a bit longer than I expected. You can see through the sleeve that I haven't woven in my ends yet...
I actually did start on the 2nd sleeve as well tonight - about 10 rows completed. If I finish the 2nd sleeve by Tuesday, that will leave the rest of the week for the dreaded assembly and edging. Why dreaded? I'm just not sure the best way to do this. Except for the shoulders, all of the seams will be joining dc posts to ch3. Is there a nice clean way to do this?
OK, there's only 7 days left, and I'm starting to worry. Why? Because I just realized that crochet olympics and school vacation week overlap! Don't get me wrong, I love my kids, a lot. I just hadn't factored vacation week into my olympic schedule. Final assembly with urchins underfoot should prove interesting, to say the least!! And buttons.... aagghh!! I still need to find buttons! I think the pressure of these Olympic games is getting to me!!
