This is what I made for the knittingi olympics this year:
I cranked this bitch out in ELEVEN DAYS!!! I adore it and because of the speed, I am now in love with chunky yarn.
Here's the Pioneer I finished (although I need to make the edging on the sleeves match better):
Here's my favorite of the year:
It's discontinued. Awesome.
I went to Ravelry. I found a person willing to sell me 10 skeins of it at about half price!! So I was able to finish my sweater and am in the same boat I started with concerning the yarn - I have about 850 yards of black left! hah!
As I was trying to figure out if I'd have enough, I worked the sweater (it's top-down) to the arms, did both arms, did the hood (which took nearly THREE skeins!) and then kept going down the sweater until I ran out. That Raveler saved the day, and I adore this sweater!
Here's my favorite hat for the year:
Why is it my favorite? Was it especially easy or especially challenging? No. Was it so cool I couldn't stand it? No.
It's my favorite because he's worn it EVERY day since I handed it to him. I finally got him to let me wash it last weekend.
I've still got missions to finish before the year ends. I'm going to dye more yarn for most of this month's missions. I've got a hat (almost done with that), an edging on a towel (sounds simple but takes forever), a tiny zombie (#3 of a set of 3 I've made this month), and, if I'm feeling really brave, I may attempt to sew something.
Planning my knit-list for next year, Ruth!
