My project for Ravelympics 2008 is the Evelyn Clark's Flower Basket Shawl. I finished it this afternoon. I am shocked that it knit up so quickly. I knit it with the Malabrigo Merino Silk in colour Indiecita and I started with 6mm needles and then went down to 5.5mm needles. It's blockin on my son's bed and that's why you see the hot wheels. I blocked it folded in half because that means less pinning and not as big a strain on my back as I bend over the bed.
Since I have enough yarn left over to knit a second shawl, I want to cast on and finish it as part of my Ravelympics 2008 goal. This one won't knit as fast because I have to work and I won't be able to put in the daily knitting time I did Friday, Saturday and today. The good thing is that now I know the patter in my head so I won't have to worry about following the charts. That should speed things up a bit.
