Cue the Music!!

I made it across the finish line in the Ravelympics Sweater Sprint! I used about 3200 yards (by my best guesstimate) of Wool of the Andes and a few yards of other assorted leftover yarns As of 11:25 last night (August 21st), she is done. I cast on at 8:15 in the morning on August 8th - by my count, that's 14 days from start to finish.
Once again, Kyle did a great job picking out the buttons!
I was derailed for a few days by a huge stack of band uniforms that needed to be altered...but she's done! I'm probably going to have to withdraw from the Mitten Medley - I still have uniforms to finish. I volunteered to do the alterations on a few...and their version of a "few" means 13 marching band uniforms (with competition uniforms and concert attire included). I just don't think that I can finish the uniforms, work a fundraiser at Blossom Music Center tomorrow from 2:00 - 10:00 and still knit a pair of mittens. Ah, well - there's always London in 2012! :-)

This just in from the ROC (Ravelry Olympic Commitee):

Congratulations on a successful challenge accomplished with effortless grace! Please accept this Ravatar bouquet from the beautiful Bobicii Nereids for a job well done,

and this medal from the head of the International Ravelympic Committee, Adonis Dionysius Bobicus Maximus.

And now please rise for the Ravelry International Anthem.
dum…dedumdum..de…dummmdedumdidoh…..(crescendo)…Dah!!!
Raucous applause and cheering erupts from the stands and mmm chocolate bars are thrown to the Ravlympians, and a cacophony of various Ravelry Anthems are heard across the stands…!

Your ASJ is wonderful! The button-picker did his usually fantastic job, too! Hope you take Mitten#1 with you -- never can tell, might have more time to work on it than you think!
