An Olympic ending!

On Saturday with time to spare, and having had much help from Christine I finished my Olympic knitting!

The timing of this challenge was perfect for me, there is so much going on around here that it would have been very easy when faced with the unknown and tricky bits of knitting to put it down to ‘think about tomorrow’.

Perfect timing was continued when Christine hosted her monthly get-together just as I was getting to the trickier sections of the scarf! You will all be relieved to know that I can now k3togtbl without sticking my tongue out! :p

Thanks to the help and because of this challenge I persisted and finished my first project, and knitting no longer seems like incomprehensible knotting!

The pictures below show it alongside the straight scarf I wove from the same yarn. I am pleased with the result, but I think I do prefer the results of this yarn woven.

My Olympic knitting! My Olympic knitting!

I am really pleased with my achievement, and the discovery that knitting is rather therapeutic and I enjoy it.

Now onto the next project …. I found a pattern for a shawl that has chevrons of garter, seed, stockinette, moss, and reverse stockinette stitches, which I figure would be very good practice. I don’t have enough yarn for the full shawl but the pattern includes instructions for a smaller scarf, so I will try that.

  1. Good for you! For you “Stronger, Higher, Faster” seems to have translated into the way in which you have fallen headlong into the Fibre Arts. Welcome to our way of life (My name is Elizabeth and it has been 5 minutes since I last touched fibre….)

  2. Glad I could be of help. The student was a quick study! and I’m happy that the tongue is no longer required to complete the stitch :)
