NOTE: Thanks to Rav still letting people ADD things to the Ravelympics (Dawn? Anna?), I found out my Purple socks DO qualify under the WIPsWrestling Category. I started them right before the Olympics started and finished them in the allowed time. They COUNT!! Woohoo!!! (Cut off time isn't until the 25th....)

Mission Complete. Many Thanks to everyone who cheered me on to victory. I couldn't have done it without your support. I'm so grateful for all of your friendships and all of the awesome encouragement you sent my way. You guys are the best.

Now I'm going to go collapse. Well, after I go cheer for my fellow Ravellers.
The games continue......

I died laughing when you said the word verification said ucrab..I needed that laugh but oh how it hurt my swollen/bruised cheek. They did a root canal on a tooth that is supposed to have 2-3 roots...special me had 5...then its hard to get me numb..did one round of shots...did another round of shots and into the jaw...started working and had so much pain had to have injections inside the middle of the tooth in each canal! I just know how much you wanted to know that!:) Been laying on the bed with ice packs all on that side.

Love the scarf its sooooo beautiful...you and Jeanne keep trying to get me into that stressful ravelympic thingy...shoot fire I haven't even done a row of knitting in a couple of days! I'm just the cheerleader for ya'll! Oh hey, there's a Mystery Stole 4 coming up..go check it out on Rav and tell me if you're up for it? I was thinking on it but then I have all these dang baby blankets I need to do plus I want to do that Greenjean sweater (that'll take a while). Well I guess I better quit being a chatty Kathy and go ice my face some more...ice, ice baby oh yeah!:)

OWWWWWW!!!! I've never had to have a root canal (yet) but I can sure feel for you!!! My Mom has always had terrible luck with those! My thoughts and prayers are with you and I hope it heals quickly!

You're so funny...mystery stole...I barely survived a SCARF for gosh sakes!!! I honestly don't know if "challenges" are good for me! I'm a TERRIBLE LOSER, so the desire to win overtakes my WHOLE LIFE! LOL!!!

Frankly, I'm not much fun to be around during these kinds of things... I think the family will keep me around if I stick to no time constraints! ;O) But I can sure be YOUR cheerleader!!!!! Woohoooo!! Go DAWN!!!!! :)

That scarf is truly a work of art. Great great job!!!!!!

Anna said...

CONGRATULATIONS!! That scarf is gorgeous!!! I knew you'd snag a gold!

You can still add things? I started a pair of socks over the weekend, but when I nearly cut the tip of my finger off chopping vegetables...well, that sort of put a dent in my knitting...and typing. DOH!

It is BEAUTIFUL!!! I want I want I want!

Hey wait.... that means... my other ballband dishcloth qualifies too!!!! Woo hoo!

I am not so sure I am going to finish my scarf, only 4 more days left and I am not even half way...unless I turn it into an ascot...

Oh poor you Dawn... Did they give you lots of drugs to take??? I hate root canals, they are worst!!!
Ok I will let you off the hook officially now, no more pressure to join in ;)
