Olympic Gold

I have completed my Olympic knitting. You are completely welcome to hum various victory marches while you read this post.


I was going to wait until the scarf was finished blocking before I took pictures, but the whole situation just thrills me too much.

The scarf ended up about 40 inches long.





The detail looks so great, I took a could of pictures to try to capture it, but inevitably failed.

The side view on the blocking table (i.e. ironing board) looks OK




But I had to place a piece of paper underneath to get something even close to what it looks like in person.



Overall, I am fairly happy with it. The project challenged me, but I don't think I've changed my mind about lace knitting. It just isn't my favorite thing to knit.

delicious! I love the colour :D Well done you! *cheers*

Yay for getting the gold, and with DAYS to spare. Go Beth!

As for all the sock yarn, Darn girl, you're going to have socks for your sister in NO TIME with Cork. That's only 28 sts per round for an average woman's feet! They'll be super snuggly and great for lounging around by the fire. As for your sock pal socks, are you making them striped knee socks, like Pippi?

lookin' awesome! so does this mean that you're officially an olympic champion...instead of an "olympic hopefull"?
rock on!

I'm puffed up with pride.
