Gold Medal!

While I may not have met my WIPs Wrestling goals, I did achieve gold medal status in the Shawl Sailing event of The Ravellenic Games this year!

For the uninitiated, this means that I cast on a shawl during the opening ceremonies of the Rio Summer Olympics and finished it before the end of the closing ceremonies.  Yes, I knit a 1,002.5 yard fingering-weight shawl in just under two weeks.  Whew!

I can't show you a proper picture of the finished shawl because it's a design I'm going to publish soon, but here it is right after binding off:

Did you compete?  How did you do?  Please share.
