Despite the fact that I haven't had a whole lot of knitting time due to work and just doing family things this weekend I still managed to get quite a bit of the first Olympic sock completed. As of last night at 11pm I am done the decreases on the heel so it's just straight up knitting for 7" until I get to the toe shaping. All in all it's going great and seems fairly simple. The only thing I had problems with was picking up the stitches up the sides of the heel so I have a little gap where I've joined back up in the round and when I was shaping my heel it didn't work out exactly right with the decreases. I ended up having an extra stitch somewhere but it looks fine. If I have enough time (and I'm predicting that I will), I'll make another sock or maybe even another pair more....who knows how many I can get done. :-D
I would love to post some pictures now, but due to some weird blogger issues, I am unable to do it right now, so it will have to wait until next post.
I see others are making wicked progress on Team Canada, way to go everyone!

It sounds like your sock is coming along great! Woohoo! I haven't tried socks yet, but hopefully will be there soon. Maybe I missed this, but what yarn and needles are you using, and pattern?

The yarn I'm using is unknown. Rhonda found it in her stash and gave it to me with the pattern. The pattern is Amazing Feets and it's from an old Canadian Living Magazine (Oct.'97) and I'm doing it on 3.75mm dpn's.
