2010 Ravelympics/Knitting Olympics

Here's my 2010 Ravelympics/Knitting Olympics project.

I spun two different tops of my handdyed BFL, mainly in blue with some brown in one of them and more green and light pink on the other.  The spinning part was done a few day before the opening ceremony.  I had just enough time for the yarn to set the twist and barely dry.

I followed the pattern as written except for the sleeves. I didn’t have enough yarn to complete both sleeves. So I finished it with ribbing. I also added a single crochet edging for the whole sweater.

Yarn: Fiber Monster's handspun yarn, approximately 500 yards
