Gold!!!!

 

Cue up the National Anthem....I've finished my Knitting Olympics item!  The Meandering Rib Scarf is now complete.  :)

Since both Brian and I want to wear this, I made it a little shorter than the called-for 65 inches.  After all, I am only 61 inches tall, so it would be ridiculously huge on me had I followed the length exactly.  And even better...I finished with two days to spare!  Despite frogging it twice in the beginning (a "false start" like in Speed Skating)  and the fact that this pattern absolutely mystified me last year, I did it!  And I did it with having a baby and a toddler in the house.  That's the really impressive part.  I don't think my housework suffered any more or any less....the house is trashed most days anyway with Will "The Destroyer" playing with toys in the house and the baby stuff everywhere.  If you can't keep it clean, you might as well knit, it's a lot more relaxing than constantly picking up the toys over and over and cursing it.  Annnnnddddd....I did this and followed the rules, my interactions with loved ones didn't suffer.  At least, I don't think they did, you'd have to ask them.  :)
