Finish Line!

February 28, 2010

The 2010 Winter Olympics and the 2010 Ravelympics have come and gone. Both gave us success and failure. The thrill of victory and the agony of defeat. So here is a recap of my Ravelympics journey.

I entered 4 projects this year.

1. Lorien Hat

Medal Category – WIPs Dancing (for hibernating works in progress).
Complete – 24 February 2010

2. Bright Copper Kettles aka Kettle and Strings

Medal Categories:

  • Designer Original Dance (for designing an original pattern
  • Lace Luge (for any lace project)
  • Platter Lift (for items for the home)
  • Stash Compulsory Dance (for items knit from your stash)

Finished: 23 February 2010

This is the second in a series of towels and washcloths that I started for the 2008 Summer Ravelympics. I am pleased with the results though I see a couple of small changes I plan to make for the final pattern.

3. Sargassum Scarf aka Igpay Atinlay KAL

Medal Categories:

  • Designer Pattern Skeleton (for a writing a publishable pattern)
  • Beading Biathlon (for beaded projects)
  • Lace Luge
  • Scarf Super-G (for scarves, obviously)
  • Single Skein Speed Skate (for projects using a single skein of yarn)

Finished: 28 February 2010 (just under the wire)

This project was also done as a Knit-along on the Tabitha’s Heart Ravelry group. How’s that for a clever way to get test knitters. The photos could be better but the pattern is complete and listed in the Ravelry database. It will be available for sale tomorrow as soon as I get some better photos.

4. Ravelympics Sock Design

This just didn’t come together. The original idea just didn’t look the way I wanted it to look. Project ended up frogged.

So not too bad all in all. Even though I did have one fail. I managed to complete two designs and one WIP in 17 days. Yes, I am a Ravelympian. If you will excuse me, I am expected on the podium for my medal ceremony.
