progress made on my Ravelympics project
progress made on my Ravelympics project

While this is clearly not the best photo I have put on here it is at least showing the progress I have made since the start of the Ravelympics began on February 12th.

I have completed the Fair Isle around the bottom of the sweater and the textured pattern repeat has 12 rows and I have completed 5 repeats so far.

The pattern by Alice Starmore is well written and the graphs are a pleasure to work with. There will eventually be Fair Isle around the sleeve cuffs and also around the neck band too.

While this sweater will not be completed by Sunday February 28th I achieved my goal which was to learn and finish the Fair Isle band so am very pleased. As Folsom has a mild month of March I suspect that the first time I will wear this sweater will be the Winter of 2010/2011
