Phew! The Olympics are over, and the Ravellenic Games are finished! I don’t know if you took part, but I had a really great time. And I knit like a Norwegian cross-country skier (in other words- really, really quickly).
My sweater came together without too much trouble. I did have a little issue during the first weekend of the games, when I had a little math issue (compounded by the fact that I – overachiever that I am – was trying to finish an entire sweater in a week) that forced me to re-knit my sleeves a couple times. (Apparently my arms are not 12 inches long and pointy. Who knew?) But, other than that, I skated through this project at a nice little clip.
Anyway, here’s my final product in all it’s glory! (Please ignore the slightly awkward poses. I can make a sweater in two weeks, but I’m damned if I can take a decent photograph. It’s a curse.)
The sweater was worked in KnitPicks’ Wool of the Andes, and the colors were:
- Sapphire Heather (body)
- Bluebird (darker contrast blue)
- Clarity (pale contrast blue)
- Papaya Heather (orange)
- Fairy Tale (fuchsia)
Did you participate in the Ravellenics? What did you make?
