Is it me, or have I been knitting FAR too much?

I'm starting to feel a bit of pressure about the Ravellenic Games sweater. Last night, in a move of sheer desperation, I brought the sweater with me to dinner with my college girlfriends. This despite having 4 skeins of yarn hanging from the thing which is now fully the size of an adult sweater. I *thought* that I only ever needed to carry 2 colors with on on any given wrong. I mean round! Freudian.

When I started, I was contently sipping my wine while managing 2 discreet balls of yarn on the table. 1.5 glasses of wine later, there was condensation on my pattern and yarn was wrapped around everybody's water glasses. Suddenly, the pattern was asking me to manage *3* colors (while still keeping track of the insidious 4th ball) and the yarn tangling was just unparalleled. Pretty soon the colors were all starting to look the same so I put the sweater away.

This morning, I had to repair a bit of damage ("is it me, or is that blue stitch supposed to be green?!") and all is well again. I'm on round 20 of 25 on the color chart.

*long suffering sigh*

I was going to take a picture of it, but it's so close to being done that I don't want to ruin the surprise now. It certainly ain't gonna be done by tomorrow, so no picture for you til Monday, sorry. But as long as I post to the finish line by 7 pm EST Sunday evening, I'm good. Here's hoping.
