Comments: I signed up for the Yarn Harlot's Knitting Olympics the day she first posted it. I took a quick look at my project list and decided this challenge was the perfect impetus to make my first lace project using a pattern and yarn I already had in my stash. During the next 3 weeks I spent hours scoping out what the other Knitting Olympians were going to knit. I thought about picking a less-challenging project. I thought about why was I doing this in the first place. While knitting like mad the last two weeks, I realized I was doing it because I love knitting and I love to compete. Watching what everyone else was doing was such a treat as well.
It may sound trite or silly, but I am very proud of what I accomplished during the last 16 days. I stressed, I knit, I admired, I tired, I loved it.
