I got some really soft black/gray yarn and am about half way through one skein (out of 3) for my prayer shawl. It's going to be great. This is the first time I ever pearled. So it's different. I just always knit everything!

Well, ladies, I never thought in a million years that this would happen, but I'm done.  I started during the opening ceremonies on Friday and finished during pairs figure skating on Saturday.  I thought I'd picked a challenging project -- to design and crochet a toddler's halter top, something I'd never done before, but I guess the kids just napped a lot and let me work.  Here's the finished product:

The straps cross in the back and thread through the top of the beige part, then through the bottom, then tie.  I'll try to get a pic of my little girl wearing it, but she wasn't awake when I left for work this morning.  In case you're wondering the yarn is a wool/angora blend, which I might dip dye in blue Kool-Aid to get a pink/purple/blue fade going on. 

I think I'll start another project today, and I suppose my new challenge is to see how many projects I can get done in 16 days.

This thread is getting really long, so I'm going to create a new thread on the finished projects board and sticky it. All finished projects in the crochet olympics can be posted there!

I changed projects.  I am making a baby blanket in the Climbing Shells pattern out of Caron Simply Soft Brites' "Berry Blue".  I'm on row 29 out of 57rows+border, so I am in good shape to finish it on time (I started it Saturday morning).

I had to change projects too... I see it as being in another "event".  I ran out of yarn for the tank and am on a yarn diet at the moment, so I was disqualified for that event.  My new event is taking place between now and thursday nigt.  I'm trying to make a sun hat out of crochet cotton for my MIL before they get here for a big visit.  So that's my challenge, and it's a big one for me.  Only two days, plus all the cleaning and getting ready.  So, it's not the skeleton, but it'll challenge me, as I've never done one before.  Cheesy

Ohhh, good luck with the hat!
My challenge with this project is that I simply don't get the instructions for the border... so I'm thinking I may just make my "own modification to the set routine" and go with a simple SC border.  It's for a boy, so a ruffle edge really isn't necessary, right?

A nice rsc edging is always really good looking for boys.  It's sort of got the look of cording or rope.  I used here in a felted purse pattern to replicate piping:  http://www.beppycat.com/Patterns.html
Good luck finishing up!  Go Craftster Olympians!

Hmmm... I hadn't seen rsc before... It might make an interesting touch.  This is the pattern I am doing (for the full-size - and I'm up to row 42 out of 57):

yikes!  The Olympics are almost done and I am not even finished with my first sock.  I am going to try to finish at least one sock, and maybe aim for the pair, although the amigurumi part of my challenge will definitely not get done. 

I feel like I made a good effort though.  I am notorious for not finishing projects, so as long as I finish the socks in a timely manner I will consider myself a winner.

Well, I amazingly finished on Friday. I had serious doubts as to whether or not it would get done. I guess I turned into a biathlete because of our house projects, which will be nearly done by the end of today too. I'll upload pictures soon--I just can't find my card reader right now. My bag ended up smaller than I planned and is a bit wonky because I finished at 1 am, but I've decided that I will be using it to gather strawberries from the garden, so it doesn't matter. Cheesy

We're in the homestretch!!

I'm working on the logos/medals for websites now for those who are using them! I'll be uploading those in a little while too.
