Ravellenic Games

Every time there are Olympic games, the knitting site Ravelry has the Ravellenics: a sort of knitting competition with teams, badges, and lots of hoopla.  The spirit of the thing is to challenge yourself with a project that is to be completed (more or less) during the time of the Olympic games.

My challenge is to finish this sweater.  I set it aside before the holidays to focus on other things, but now I'm hoping to finish it off in a couple of weeks.  Here's my project page.

When I started I needed sleeves, the front bands, and I'm going to use whatever yarn is left over to lengthen the body. 

At the end of day 4, I've got one sleeve done, and one on the needles.  I'm making pretty good progress.

I have not been able to get enthusiastic about the current Olympic games but they do provide a wonderful catalyst for pursuing our own goals. ;- )
