Let the Games Begin!

I signed up for the Ravelympics!

I am competing with Team Central Coast on Ravelry in the "Sweater Sprint" event. The idea behind Ravelympics is that you have to cast on a project in the opening ceremonies of the Summer Olympics and cast off during the closing ceremonies. You are supposed to start a project that would be a challenge for you to complete in 17 days.

I have been planning on starting the Winter Wonderland Coat out of the book Inspired to Knit, but knew that there was no way I could knit that in 17 days. Unless I didn't eat, bathe, or use the restroom.... So I decided to make the Lush and Lacy Cardigan my Ravelympics project.
It is a much more manageable sized sweater.

It will be a challenge, but I will finish it.

I've been wanting to make this sweater for awhile! I'm really excited to start!
