Olympic KAL - Progress Photo

Here is my progress photo for my Olympic 2010 KAL project. This is actually the 2nd project I cast on. I started a scarf using the Cabled Brioche stitch pattern the night of the opening ceremony and fought with it for about 6 days. That stitch pattern and I did not get along and it has the honor of being the first project I have ever given up on and frogged. I managed to get off a stitch or two at some point and trying to fix it was an exercise in futility.

This second project I am MUCH happier with. I am using a pattern from Nicky Epstein's Signature Scarf book. This is the Cable scarf pattern (but without the fringe). I am using Bamboozle in the Ivory and Royal Blue colors which are exact matches for my declared country of Finland. I really like this pattern. It reminds me of the moguls on the ski runs!

I guess this would qualify for Team Spirit, Olympic Spirit and Alpine Skiing potentially!

Looks great! Reminds me of the scarf I'm knitting for the Olympics!! I only wish I was knitting mine with Bamboozle - it would be much softer!! :-)
