Well, the 2010 Winter Olympics is more or less over. Paralympics is still to come next week but the hype for that is much less than the regular Olympics. A shame, really. The stadium is now gearing up for the big opening ceremony next Friday. This year really does seem to fly by fast.
During all that I did managed to finish my Ravelympics project.
Yarn - handspun Blue Faced Leicester, fibre dyed by Sweet Georgia
(Fibre Club), colourway - Foumndation.
Pattern - Cedar Leaf Shawlette - Never Not Knitting
The yarn was probably thicker than what was recommended but it was perfect for what I wanted. A nice thick and soft shawlette. I added an extra row of eyelets before starting the leaf border to better separate the border and the shawl.
Would I knit this again? You betcha!! I'm looking forward to trying this pattern out in different yarns.
