wrestling wips

With less than a month until the opening ceremonies, the buzz about Ravelympics is starting to build. And with less than a month, I better get a move on with my projects on needles to clear the deck in time for the competition. I plan to compete in the Sweaters Slalom event not Work-In-Progress Wrestling! Can I start and finish a Cottage Garden sweater in 16 days? Not sure, but I'm going give it my best effort!

Between now and the weekend, I hope to finish three more socks and then bundle the lot of them off to the Warm Hands Network. And then that's done for now. Last night I took a break from socks and picked up my Heartland Lace Shawl again. The shawl had been put aside in frustration several days ago when, part way into the third lace repeat, I realized I was short a stitch on one side. Careful comparison of left and right sides revealed that the problem was simple to fix - a missed yarn over two rows before. Now that's back on track. Just 29 days to the opening ceremonies!
