There was no gold to be had in this house this time. However, my unfinished hat is much further along than any previous attempt, and is likely to get finished in the not too distant future.
Hopefully by winter. Hopefully it fits. And hopefully it looks vaguely decent!
If I'd knitted in the right direction the whole time rather than some rather extensive bouts of unknitting, it probably WOULD be finished. Oh well! I'm glad I tried.
To see a ridiculously amazing item knitted for the Knitting Olympics, visit the host, Stephanie, at Yarn Harlot. It is seriously worth a look. Remember that to win gold (which she did) the project needed to be cast on during the opening ceremony and completed by the end of the closing ceremony. That's 17 days. Seven-teen Days. Go and look.
