Well, I started the knitting olympics last night, and I cast on the Snowdrop Shawl. Well, after working at it today I have realized that the equipment (ie the yarn) I had for my event was not compatible with my event (the Snowdrop Shawl). I have therefore switched events, and I am knitting the North Sea Shawl from the Folk Shawls book. I hope that the equipment and the event will be a bit more compatible!
On another note I have lost my voice, to the delight of my husband. :-)
