Victory, the First

So last night, I accepted my first Knitting Olympics/Ravelympics Gold Medal. I cast on for the Simple Knitted Bodice on Saturday, February 13 and finished last night on February 18. That's right, I made an adult-sized full length sweater in 5 days. My hands were cramped is all I'm saying :oP

Anyways, here's the finished object. Now it's on to Elenka for my second project. Hopefully I'll get a bunch done this weekend.I was trying to find my last Knitting Olympics adventure on my blog and sure enough, it was there. Last Knitting Olympics, 4 years ago, I made my first sweater. It was the purple fuzzy thing that is still in my closet. Funny thing is that it was massive bulky yarn and I still couldn't finish it in the 16 days. It was kind of horrid too. It's nice to see how much improvement can be made in 4 years to your knitting skills. If you want to read my escapades from 4 years ago, here's the post.

Knit on...
