- Skipped picot edging
- Did contrast colour ribbing at sleeve ends and bottom body.
- Made body & sleeves longer
- Did buttonband instead of snap buttons.
I really did enjoy joining in the Ravellenics! It was nice to give myself a kntting challange (knitting a cardigan in two weeks) but it was even more fun to see others projects and progress in the various knitting groups. Reading about others and why they choose their challanges was inspiring.
I will probably join again next Olympics (which will be in the winter making it more suitable for wool, Huzzah!)
I’m mighty pleased with the colourwork. The combination of colours suits me very much, and I’m really happy with the Golden Heather colourway as a main colour. Plus, isn’t it appropriate that a Ravellenic piece of knitwork is a Golden Brynja? I entered in two events: Sweater triathlon and colourwork crosscountry of which I already received my “medals” for competing.

The Icelandic Knitter’s team also offers some pretty big prices: Icelandic yarns, Icelandic books OR: A magical knitting fairy tour through Iceland! The winners aren’t drawn yet, but will probably anounced somewhere in the next few days (I guess?) The other teams also have some pretty neat prices! I wish all who competed lot’s of luck for that!!!
Oh, and the golden medal? My boyfriend just declared this the coolest thing I’ve ever knitted so far. I’m satisfied 🙂
