Just Short of the Finish Line
Well, as hard as I tried knitting during the FOFI Olympics, I came short of the finish line probably because I chose not to watch the closing ceremonies.
Here's my Inca Marl Coat with the ruffle loosely pinned around the edge. As you can see I still have a bit to go. Fortunately, my 2 extra skeins arrived and I've already dipped into one. I think I'll be doing a bit of pulling and tugging during the blocking of the ruffle so that it fits around the whole edge.
I don't think I would have gotten this far if I hadn't committed to knitting only on the ruffle during Olympic viewing. Yesterday I had to put it down after team USA sent the gold medal hockey game into overtime - I was worried I was knitting too tightly over the edge of your seat action. Sadly, Team USA lost the game and my Olympic knitting came to an end.
