Knitting Olympics

Though I was on the fence about participating in Yarn Harlot's Knitting Olympics because of my tight schedule, at the last minute I decided to go for it. I didn't pick out a new project, but decided to buckle down and finish up projects on my needles that were for other people so I could cast on new things. Despite my insanely busy school schedule, I finished on time! The goods:

Dead or Alive? seen here in the massive snow drifts that have taken up residence outside my house.
Alternating skeins of Noro Silk Garden with Cascade 220 accent.
Seanners is in charge of the eyes.

Socks for Seanners' birthday, which is actually near St. Patty's day so the color scheme is totally wrong. Leftovers from my superwash patriotic socks so now we have matching socks.

Another pair of socks for Betsy, my weaving teacher. 1.5 skeins of Universal Yarn, Ditto.


Next Knitting Olympics, I hope I am in a position where I can take on a crazy project like an entire sweater. For now, I am pleased to be passing these projects on to their intended owners and casting on new hats and shawls and socks and scarves and mitts....
