I realized I never checked in during the Olympics...was obviously somewhat distracted!

I finished my huuuuge afghan, with a few days to spare. Here's a somewhat dark picture:



For reference, I have a full size bed, and it's hanging over the edges a bit. It's very warm, and soft, and squishy, and now it's getting too warm to use it much   Undecided


Everyone's finishes look great! I especially love the red Mariah, and Bee's shawl. A friend just finished her Mariah(not her Olympic project though) in green, which also looks awesome, and seeing them in various colors totally makes me want to knit one for myself.

Finally finished! I had to give my hands some serious rest before I could pick this up again. I finished it a couple of days ago.







(Sorry about the crappy pictures, my image host conveniently 'optimises' them automatically- thus sucking the detail out of everything).

I love it. It's a shame I couldn't finish it in time to get a gold medal, but the continued use of my hands turned out to be a somewhat higher priority.
Now I've just gotta wait for the weather to get cold enough to wear this thing!

I know, I feel like I miss a ton if I miss out on a week!
