I got through about 10 rows of The Name of the Doctor scarf during the opening ceremonies. I did the math: at that rate, I am highly unlikely to finish it during the Olympics.
I want a medal to show my participation in this year's Ravellenic Games. I picked up my Counting Crows mega-mittens which were close to being done and finished them for WIP Dancing. It's an odd angle, but at least it's in focus:
I think the pattern's from What Else Would Madame Defarge Knit?. I call them mega-mittens because they extend halfway up one's arms. I'll probably never use them, but they were fun to knit.
