So I noticed that I called my last post Super Tuesday. Yeah, that was a big mistake, as it was Monday when I posted it. Duh. I've no defence for that one, other than it was Monday and I don't function on a Monday.
Anyway, my Ravelympics are over. I've just finished my last item, my Baby Bog Jacket.
This is the front:
And a close up of the cutsie buttons:
Pattern: Baby Bog Jacket by Elizabeth Zimmermann, from Knitting Around.
Yarn: Patons Baby Fab from stash
I misplaced the stripe and it ended up on the back, but I think it still looks ok.
Also the Icord along the front drove me NUTS. It must have taken me about 6 goes to get it looking right. I'll admit the sweater was thrown to the corner of the room amidst much swearing this afternoon at one stage. But, tantrums aside, I managed to finish it.
I'm not claiming this was anywhere near my best project, it's far from perfect, but I learnt a lot while making it. Although I was so thankful for the DVD of Knitting Around. I must have watched the Baby Bog episode at least 7 or 8 times at various points in the project. Thanks, Meg for being such a good teacher!
It has bagged me another 3 medals; Sweaterboard Cross, Junior Olympics and Compulsory Stash Dance. That brings my haul for these games to 6. Not too bad, I think!
I wonder could I whip up anything else between now and 8am Monday morning Irish time, when the Olympics finish???
Nah I don't think so. I have a hot date with my Bex socks and my Myrtle Leaf Lace Shawl.
See you again in 2 more years, Ravelympics.
