Knitting Olympics - almost finished

Despite a lack of updates, blocking has been happening :

And this morning, seaming and hockey happened :

It isn't perfect, but I think this is the benefit of knitting for one's grandmother - everything one does is perfect in her eyes.

The office chair, modeling. Much to my surprise, the stripes all matched up. The armholes are curly-curly, but picking up stitches will look worse, I think, so I'm going to leave them alone.

The knitting gods seem to have decided that the whole ribbing fiasco was sufficient penance for whatever sins I've logged, and sizing after blocking seems fine.

Now, if anyone can find the pretty buttons I bought Friday (I showed them to Lea Friday night, so they're somewhere in this house!) I can finish this thing during the closing ceremonies.
