World Cup

I am apparently insane, and I like to push myself with my knitting. I participated in the Knitting Olympics, and made a cabled hoodie sweater in 16 days. I have just finished the World Cup, in which I made a huge lace shawl in 30 days, from kick-off of the first game of the World Cup to the final game of the tournament.

I win. :D

This is's Rona Lace Shawl, in Alpaca Cloud- color Iris.
Um. It's still drying, so I don't have any wearing-of-the shawl pictures.

This is the completed shawl prior to me even considering blocking.

Just to see the difference. It's pretty nifty.

It just seems to go on forever!
