I finished the Ladder Shawl on Sunday afternoon. It was an easy knit -just 5x5 ribbing and then dropping stitches. Dropping stitches with novelty yarn is not much fun, as the section using the eyelash yarn got a bit tangled, but everything came out well in the end! ...and the needles were big #11...I'm more of a #2-#5 girl myself...but big needles are OK every now & then.
About those Ravelympics....I'm withdrawing the Slave to the Plurk socks from the competition and focusing on the two 85% complete projects and the one 50% complete project. I think I can...I think I can...I think I can...I think.
