Wrapping up the Ravelympics

OOPS! I had to go back and edit this post because I accidentally hit "publish" before I had even written anything. Well, the Vancouver Winter Games are done and well, so are the Ravelympics. I managed to complete 2 of my 3 projects! I realized that three events were just a little too much, but I'm happy about my accomplishments anyway. I managed two hats in the Hat Halfpipe. I knit two Chunky Cable hats- one for my sister and one for my niece. I had only intended to knit one hat, but I had another skein of this chunky alpaca yarn and I had to use it up. There was no choice. I had to knit two. I also knit a little sweater in the Sweaterboard Cross Event and I'm about 75% done on my Charity Curling Event. I knew last Friday that if I stayed focused I could have the bear project finished by the Closing Ceremonies tonight, but instead I cast on for another pair of socks on Friday and I knit away on my sock instead of the bear. I lost my focus at the end there, but I'm not unhappy with the final results.

Here's my niece wearing her chunky cabled hat.
