Ravellenic Games Results

As of 7pm, the ravellenic games are over. This was my first time participating and it was fun and not fun all at the same time. I really like knitting and having to rush took some of the fun out of it. I had entered two events : Shawl Sailing and Sock Put. Here are my results.

It took 2 attempts, but I was able to finish the Aullwood shawl. The lace pattern is a little tricky and didn't work well with traveling or hanging out with kids in hotel rooms. After I did 11 rows, I made a mistake and trying to fix it, I dropped a stitch. I can fix a dropped stitch in stockinette but I'm not good enough yet to fix a dropped stitch in lace and I had to start over. I made another mistake my second time around but I kept going. The two lace repeats don't line up as they should but they are only off by 2 stitches and it isn't too noticeable. I was able to finish the short rows in less than a day. 

Here it is wrapped around my neck and the way I am most likely to wear it under my coat this winter.

It's pretty long and hard to get in the frame. I need to reblock it but a quick block was good enough for these pictures.

I was a toe away from finishing the Take a Hike Socks I was trying to make in the Sockput event. So close! If only I hadn't ate, or spent time with my family today. I finished the first sock yesterday afternoon and had 26 hours to finish the second. I should be able to finish it tonight while I watch the Closing ceremony.
