2010 knitting olympics, days 14-15

2 Comments

First here’s the progress by the end of Thursday night:

and now after Friday night:

Whee!  I finished the tunic last night!  With the time I had available to knit (since Yannick was working and the kids were sleeping) I parked myself in front of the Olympics, finished the last sleeve, wove in a few dozen ends then picked-up and knit the collar.  I even had time to let it soak in some Eucalan then put it up to block before I went to bed.

I’m debating sewing down the inside edges of the collar.  I think I’ll try it on Jakob first to see how it looks, since he’s about the size to wear it.

Chinchillas!  (Or random little pixillated rodents)

And a sleeve.

So by Friday night the main part of the gift (and my Knitting Olympics challenge) was complete.  All that remains for my official challenge is to knit, stuff and complete a chinchilla toy to go with the tunic.  Do you think I’ll make it in time?  The Olympics end tomorrow…

  2. The sweater turned out beautiful! I am very impressed by your knitting skills and speed. I am not an Knitting Olympian of your caliber, but I did finish two Ravelympics projects so I’m feeling good.
