FO Friday: The Finish Line and racing forward on a wip

Done all done! I have been working away on the Ravellenic Games 2012 for team teamcarryalongkalgals2012.

Tada, finished Wingspan in 20hrs, 53mins, with Total of 76 beads (an extra bead at the tip of the wings at the top edge) Cast on during the torch lighting, finished Wednesday night at 10:25pm EST. I might add this is only knitting time, not including sleeping, eating, trips to the emergency vet (Jack is back to his cuddly normal self), weddings, etc. For more details see the last couple of posts!

To enter this category: WIP Wrestling, Work on an existing project. You must not have worked on the project since May 15, 2012. (this certainly qualifies) The project should have been started by you. If someone else started the project, you should have done a substantial amount of work on it yourself before the May 15 cut off.
I started this December 1, 2011, my challenge is to get this done before August 12,2012. Embarassed to say, this is my own design, pattern is ready for publishing, object 90% done. My only excuse is no excuse lol

Oh and my Darling sweetheart bought me this

on Wednesday night, delivered today <Happy Dance>

My very own Gio-bike, it’s electric! Zero to 33 km per hr, it has a bike alarm, storage under the seat, glove box, and trunk.

    My bad – it had bicycle pedals – no license. Have fun. I’d still like to see the scooter. Hope you guys had fun at Darlington. Sorry I missed it.
