I crossed the finish line

Well the ravelympic knitting got done, finished the socks and the February lady sweater just before the finishing ceremony.

After all that I was all knitted out for a couple of days. still slowly knitting the Goddess knits mystery shawl, now 4 rows from the edging. I have also joined Secret of the Stole III, just finished clue 1, hoping to get clue 2 finished this week before clue 4 is published on Friday. I'm using Lane Borgeosa cashwool in a denim shade from stash for this.

For respite from all the lace I knitted a hot water bottle cover, again using stash yarn -2 x 50g balls of Knitpicks telemark. Pattern was with last months Knitting magazine, its in the artesano supplement.

It's now hidden in my younger sons bed, where his big brother cant find it. I can see me knitting another soon to stop any arguments.
