Olympics Update February 24, 2010Posted by lunarawe in knitting, knitting olympics, shawl.
It is growing! I am actually reducing to the final point… the end is in sight! Hooray!
I am loving how this shawl is working up. The Rowan Tapestry yarn is super soft and has such lovely drape once the stitches are dropped. And its simple repetition makes for great Olympic knitting.
Four skeins down, and into the fifth. I did several more than the 12 straight section repeats suggested by the original pattern. The goal was to use up the yarn (which has been stash ripening for over four years) and have a nice sized shawl at the end. I believe the podium is in sight! And I have managed to keep up with my reading for school so I am feeling good about my decision to do an adapted knitting Olympics this time around.
For all of you who are knitting frantically, know that I am cheering you on! Go, go, GO! You can do it! Remember to stretch.
