I failed the Ravelenic Games.
I totally followed the rules – I cast on during the opening ceremonies, and I completed my project before the closing ceremonies. I posted on my team page. I did not realize I had to “cross a finish line” on a Ravelry thread, and so I don’t get a medal. I’m kinda sad about that.
My project is totally gorgeous. The clap turned out lovely, and I know my mom will love it, but I guess my bragging rights are limited to my blogs.
That’s the thing with ADD – sometimes reading all the rules gets boring. And for a first time participant, there were a LOT of rules to follow. I’m not making excuses like Shani Davis did – blaming the Under Armor suits. This was all on me.
And I’m ok with it. And clearly, Larry Dog is happy with it, as he immediately lied down on it, so I wrapped him up. I did what I set out to do! I tried my hand at project knitting, and I liked it. I finished a project and didn’t leave it hanging on my needles for weeks (months, years….). And my mom gets a kick ass clapotis. It’s all good, and I know that next time I should probably read all the instructions.
