No Gold but Two F.O.'s
I did not receive a gold in the Knitting Olympics. Which is not to say I did not try. Here's the progress I made on the sweater, in my opinion, the hardest part - the colorwork on the body from the hem up (including extra inch that gets turned up to make a scalloped edge). The rest is solid black except for the sleeves, which have more colorwork, but are done in the round, so no purling.
In addition, I finished making this tote bag, which I started about three years ago. It even survived a move. Note the piping.
And finally, I knit this hat for a friend who is due to have a baby any day.
