Tomorrow is the day. With the opening ceremonies in Beijing, Ravelry is kicking off the first official Ravelympics.
Determined not to get in over my head, a la Malabrigo March, I am focusing on just one project during the Ravelympics. It’s so hard to do, because there are all kinds of great events and patterns wooing me from afar. But I am standing firm, and have only entered one event: WIPs Wrestling.
WIP (work in progress) Wrestling is for knitters who need a little extra help to get motivated and finish a UFO (unfinished object) that has been sitting neglected or taken forever to finish. It is something that should be a challenge for you to complete in the 17 days of the Olympics.
Can you guess what I’ll be pulling out for the first Ravelympics?
You guessed it. I have brought with me to America My Cardigan for Arwen. Here is a shot of her:
The back is also finished, so all I have left to finish is the right side/sleeve/hood.
Doesn’t sound too hard, does it?
The first side only took 3 months!
So, here it is. I have 17 days, starting tomorrow, to finish the sweater of all sweaters. I won’t let her beat me…I can do it!
Here’s to the Ravelympics. Here’s to WIP Wrestling. Here’s to Arwen!
