Ravelympics 2008

The goal: To cast on a project during the opening ceremonies of the 2008 Beijing Olympics-- a project of somewhat epic proportions-- and finish it by the end of the closing ceremonies on the 24th. 17 days of mad knit sprinting!!

My event: The Sweater Sprint

The project: A self-designed sweater for my fairly manly-sized cousin Mark, who is currently in attendance at the actual Olympics.

My Team: Team Middle Earth. One Team To Rule Them All!

My Yarn: Cascade 220 Heathers in colorway "Shire" (of course).

My Status: Four days down, back completed.

What Michael Phelps thinks of this progress:



Evidence:


(I am using one of Mark's favorite sweaters as a size/shape template)

On to the front!!

I lust after Phelps in a way that is just wrong. I heart him and his big, dopey ears.
