Cue the fanfare!
I have awarded myself a Knitting Olympics Gold Medal.
Did I finish the cabled sweater?
However, I learned a thing or two about Olympic scoring techniques while watching the ice skating events. If it works for them, it should work for me.
SO! Under the new scoring system instituted after the infamous "Shetland judge cheating scandal," my knitting project scored enough points in the "difficulty" and "style" categories to win the gold, despite a disasterous "fall" mid-sweater which required ripping back 6 inches on both the front and back. The two sleeves earned flawless scores in the "long program" and the body recovered to be complete to the underarms. The Gold Medal is mine.
OK, Team Sacramento, how did the rest of you do in your events?
