So while some of the world's best athletes were finishing up a leisurely 26.2 mile run this morning, I was binding off my Wood Hollow Vest!
I wouldn't have reknit this from the bottom up if it weren't for the challenge of the Ravellenic Games. There was one night of knitting where I thought I would n e v e r reach the armhole shaping decreases, but every Olympic event has that moment where you hit the wall and just have to keep going.
And I'm so glad I did, because I love this vest and I will sport it proudly!
