One would think that locating 2 balls of Wool Ease Chunky in Fisherman (off-white) could be so difficult in the greater SF bay Area, but it is. I finally ordered it online and the yarn should be here between the 1st and 8th of March, which is somewhat after the Olympics closing ceremony. I plan to knit it to the last inch of yarn that I have.
Anyway, it looks like I might be the last knitter over the finish line at the rate I am going. Oh well.
The whole thing acheived what I wanted, which was to try something more challenging.
