I won

Before midnight last night I cast off Lilli Pilli. I made it. With lots of time to spare. Now my goal is to finish Kimba before the closing ceremonies. 4 rows to go.
Pattern: Lilli Pilli (purchased on Ravelry)
Yarn: tosh sock - I used By Far, Harvest and Penumbra

The shawl was a joy to knit. The stripes are mindless - perfect for knitting in the car or while waiting for your kids. The lace section was easy to follow. Every wrong side row is purled. I call it a resting row. I would definitely recommend this pattern for your first shawl.

It is in need of blocking so I will get more pictures after that is finished.

Stripe Study is almost finished. Alex will be casting it off tonight. The colours are amazing! The main colour is Pt. Reyes, a new colour of Freia Shawl Ball. You need two balls of this colour. The contrast colour is tosh merino light in the colour oak. You need one skein for this.

Alex is also working on the Beginners Brioche Scarf (pattern purchased on Ravelry). She knits most of her projects in fingering weight and wanted something quick. This is on 9mm needles. She is using 2 balls of Freia Bulky in Cloud and 2 skeins of ASAP in Scout.

Now it's bed time. Last night we were up until the end of the hockey game. My body needs more sleep than I have been getting since the Olympics started.

Glad to hear that the Lilli pilli is a good knit! I am having a bit of trouble with her Inara wrap and had to put it in a time out until I have some time to sit with it and get it sorted out. The Olympics is not that time!!

I have been working the same row of a cardigan since Monday. How hard is it to remember k8, yfwd, sl 1, k1, psso, ena repeat across row.

Apparently HARD when the Canadians are doing so well and records are falling and being set EVERYWHERE.
