I finished weaving in the ends of Mystere on Wednesday night while watching the women’s bobsled teams race down the track. I tried it on, and was instantly pleased with the fit and the finished project.
Then I promptly washed and blocked it, but now it is dry! Yay! There were a few moments when I wanted to set down the sleeves and not pick them up for a long while, but I persevered and even managed to finish before the Olympics were over. I love the Knitting Olympics so much, not just because I have a sweater in less than two weeks, but also because I love being a part of the larger knitting community.
But, have no fear, there are still projects on the needles. I started a simple garter stitch shawl while Steve and I saw Shutter Island and I’m working on some test knitting and a new design.
