Yippee!!! Both the Shrug and I are done....

The Olympic Shrug is complete! Thank god! It has been pretty rough since Monday; think I have a sinus and bladder infection but inbetween massive doses of medication and numerous trips to the bathroom I have held up the torch and tried to knit what I could (my plans were so much more grandiose but you know how that goes...). Sewed in the ends this morning. Nick offered to model only on the condition that his face not be shown ("geez mom, you know I don't mind modelling for you but this is for a woman you know"). Of course after the photo was taken could I get the Shrug off? I think my mom will be quite pleased with this. I am very pleased with it. I do have to thank Stephanie for such a great idea and for all the other knitters, Canadian and Worldwide that have added such an excitement and energy about this little project. And I must definitely thank my trainer and mentor Joan Kass for being there throughout the project. I did it Joan! Thanks so much. More later but now I must go and rest my face (and hit the ladies room!).

The shrug is great!! The gold is a donut this year. Ugly as a medal, but delightful as a food. Will present the real thing when I see you next. Feel better

Great shrug. We want to see it in person at Gone Stitchin'. Good luck with your infections-they can take awhile to get rid of.
