Olympic Finish


11 days, 17 hours!

I knitted until midnight last night. I only had one-half of an inch left to go but my eyes were all blurry. So I finished the blanket this afternoon! The finished blanket is 25" square. I was worried that I might run out of yarn as I was casting off. I only had around 2 feet of yarn left- whew! I thought I would be knitting until Sunday 2/26 but last weekend I turned the corner and it was all downhill from there. I really loved this pattern- knitting in fours was fun and easy to track. I like that the blanket is reversible. I would be happy to knit a larger afghan using the same pattern.

I feel...hmmm.... proud, pleased, and a bit sorry to see the end of this great adventure.

Once Karen gets home, I'll ask her to take some better pictures. The Oregonian newspaper will award gold, silver and bronze medals- well, gift certificates- to the nearby Yarn Garden store. Who knows? Maybe I'll get lucky! I'll give the blanket to Jeff & Heather this weekend.
