This is one of my favorite yarns.

Its so very wooly, even has bits of straw in it. It's nothing you'd want next to your skin, but as an outer layer, it can't be beat!
And here is all the paraphenalia I'll need to make my lobster sweater. This is the 5th or 6th one of these I've done. I have to dredge up an old picture of one; they are all pre-digital.

Here are the buttons for the sweater. I got a couple dozen of these back before I had the Things.
Since I all but stopped knitting, I have many, many left.

So, this is my Ravelympics project. The event is the Sweater Sprint.
Progress is looking....well, not very good!

That's about 6 inches or so...It's 11 inches to the armpits, when I'll split off to front and back on straight needles. I don't steek. I'd like to, but I would have to be heavily medicated, and well,  I have those kids....

The master plan is to get to the armpits, split onto straights, and cast on both sleeves at once-magic looped. If I can get the sleeves under my belt, the rest should be pretty quick. 
Oh, I just remembered the hood. Yikes, I've got to get moving on this.
I am so NOT the Michael Phelps of knitting!!!!
