Tour de France knitting

I just love the Tour de France. Sometimes I get up early and watch the end of it in the morning - it starts at 5 AM Pacific Daylight Time, and finishes around 8 AM. Or else I watch it in the afternoon when it shows again from 5 to 8 PM. I am keeping Mermaid, my third iteration of Hannah Fettig's Featherweight Cardigan pattern, in the TV room for knitting exclusively while watching the Tour. It is amazing how much I am getting done!
My Ravelry link to the project with pattern and yarn details is at

Halfway through the Tour and I am beginning the bottom garter stitch band.
