If at first you don't succeed...

Well, a week on call for the ICU got the better of me - I didn't manage to finish my Olympic Knitting Project. I was on pace to finish up until then, but being at the hospital until midnight or later several nights wasn't conducive to making much progress.

I still have about 35% of the yarn left at this point:

August 26

(cat shown for scale)

This is one row before the end of the 13th repeat. I might just be able to squeeze out 15 pattern repeats. Turns out that my fears of having a wee little scarf were unfounded - this is going to be pretty big post blocking.

So I'll just have to try to finish it in the next week or so. I should be able to get some quality knitting time in; on Thursday, The Gambler and I head to Italy for a 2 week holiday. Complete with 7 days in Tuscany.

Hee hee, is it the cat or the shawl making the couch cushion sink like that? I think if you're off saving lives, it's an allowable get-out-of-Olympic-knitting-free pass.

Wow, feels like i havent seen you at SnB for ages! Hope you have a great time in Tuscany! Sounds wonderful.

Hahaha! Cat shown for scale? How about cat shown because you would never, ever dare dislodge the cat! Tuscany looks great, though. You can always finish once the work insanity stops.

It looks beautiful, it will be wonderful when it is completed and I am jealous of your trip to Italy, have a wonderful time!

Here's hoping you finish the shawl in time to wear Tuscany to Tuscany....

That's right. If you can't wear Tuscany to Tuscany, you can at least knit a bit of it in Tuscany.

I think the shawl looks great!
