It was a great disappointment that I was unable to finish my clapotis (knit of horrifyingly expensive yarn) by the end of the Knitting Olympics. I tried modelling my response on Bode Miller’s or Lindsay Jacobellis’, making it sound like I didn’t care, but really, I was pretty sad. I didn’t have the great attitude of Emily Hughes, who was excited to simply be there. I needed closure.
And every time I look at the clapotis, on which I have just about finished the straight sections and have all the decrease yet to complete, I feel worse.
So it was thrilling to discover an opportunity to redeem myself. At Crunchy Granola’s I read about the TurtleAlong, for Olympic Knitters who are working to finish their incomplete Knitting Olympics projects. Thank you, Femiknit Mafia, for thinking of the rest of us!!
