My First Gold Medal!
Listen.... Can you hear the National Anthem playing?
I got off to a late start, beginning on Saturday night, but after 3 days of SOLID knitting, I am so pleased to announce that I completed the Flower Basket Shawl! Woo Hoo! I used Mountain Colors - Mountain Goat in the colorways Silverbow. Isn't it fabulous?
I had been "dabbling" with simple beginner lace scarves over the past 2 months, but completing an entire shawl ?!? I thought that a feat like this would be beyond my reach.
I will be working on the Bird's Nest Shawl for the remainder of the Olympics. I know that I don't have a snowballs chance in Hades at completing it, but I do promise you all that I won't go Tonya on you, when I don't.
I am hoping that everyone else who is "competing" in the Olympics will strive for their gold and will attain it!
Go Team USA!
