I did it, I did it!! Yesterday I finished my Olympic knitting project!!

I was starting to feel as though I'd never finish it, but mid afternoon yesterday it was cast off, and not an inch too soon: the goal was to knit as far as the yarn would stretch. I have just enough left to weave in, and not a millimetre more.

I am very pleased with the pattern which I ended up making up myself as my head was too dull to work out the original pattern I'd chosen, so I went ahead and made an Olympic G0ld dishcloth from it as well, and am now klicking away at a sleeveless pullover for DD1 for the winter. I hope I have enough yarn, as there's no more to be had ...

Knitting olympics

Well, it's been a while since I posted here, in fact I have to admit that I'd forgotten that I'd started this blog at all!

Life has been very busy and rather stressful at times, but I am still knitting, albeit not always as fast as I'd like.

However I am trying to knit faster this week because I am trying to do this:

Am I going to make it? I am hopeful and trying hard. I may even have a picture later :-)

Gotta sleep now, g'night!!
