Two Out of Three Ain’t Bad *

Although I didn’t get a chance to start Charlie’s Kitty Pi Bed, I was able to finish my other 2 events for the Ravelympics!

Pattern: Hourglass Sweater from Last Minute Knitted Gifts
Started: Sunday, March 9th, 2008
Finished: Sunday, August 24th, 2008
Yarn: Plain & Fancy Sheep & Wool Co.
Needles: US 6 circulars


I followed the pattern exactly, with one exception. I heard a lot of people say the neck was a bit wide, as written in the pattern, so I did 3 extra decrease rows before finishing the neckband.

Thank you for all your cheering and positive feedback! It really helped :)

Ravelympics was really a fun way to get me motivated and knitting more!

I hope you all had a great weekend! I’m almost finished reading Twilight, and I can’t wait to start New Moon!!

* Sorry, Meat Loaf popped into my head as soon as I thought of this title :)

  1. LOVE Meatloaf, so yes, the song popped in my head too…

    The sweater is lovely, and kudos on two of three. I managed 1.95 of four, or something of the sort. I could have cranked out the second hat if I’d stayed home yesterday morning, but… I was where I needed to be.


  2. Two out of three is very good, I only had one hat for the Tour de France and didn’t do even that :o)

    Your hourglass sweater looks really beautiful, that colour is pretty on you and it looks like a lovely fit. I must make this sweater, seems like it would be such a useful piece.


  3. Wow Terrie it is lovely on you — great fit, great colour. Just beautiful.
    Hey, Kelly lent me twilight — addictive isn’t it!


  4. CONGRATS!! On getting your gold! Gurl I could barely crank out 1 F.O. let alone too!

    Your Hourglass sweater is so pretty on you!


  5. Damn girl you ROCKED the Olympics!! I was a huge failure. It did light a fire under my butt that was much needed so that is good. The sweater looks amazing on you!


  6. Fabulous colour and the neckline is really flattering. Well done for getting it done. Ravelympics was a real burst of motivation for me too. I too had a meatloaf title, guess it goes with the territory.
