As it stands now, I am taking part in Ravelympics 2010. Last Ravelympics, I failed miserably trying to do a sweater and a pair of socks. The sweater has since been completed, got a moth hole in it, been repaired and washed, blocked, and worn to work. Yay! I am so glad that I was able to save it. Warning! Clothing moths like Alpaca too. The socks are still a UFO, because I just don't like how the yarn feels, and I feel like i am knitting with brillo. Over the course of time I have grown to appreciate finer grades of sock yarn, so my tastes have changed. Who knows if I will ever get a chance to finish them.
So we move on to 2010. The winter Olympics is ON AND POPPIN'. The US has won 20 medals, and I would like to believe that part of the reason was because I was knitting while I was glued to the television set every night. I belong to 2 ravelympics groups; Team Sit N' Knit NYC, and Team 10 in 2010. For my Sit N Knit entry, I decided to do WIPs Wrestling, and complete my Mulled Wine Raglan Cardigan using Cosmic Pluto's design. I am proud to say that at this point, I have completed the body and am working on the sleeves 2 at a time. I feel like a figure skater who has completed their second to last Triple Axel. One more to go! Here is a picture.

Before Ravelympics started, I was working on Vaila during the month of January. I decided to work on it from the top down. I have completed the waist shaping. Here is a picture.
Here are my charts for my 10 in 2010 progress.
