FO Friday: WIP list returns!

knit art 3

Well The Olympics is over but the Soper Creek Yarn Challenge is still on till March 1 at noon. This is a regular event at our LYS.  We each purchase a parcel of the featured yarn, in this case 100gms of Briggs & Little 100% Canadian Wool. The Community is invited to vote for their favourite item.

The Challenge: Use both colours in your project (red/white). More yarn can be added if necessary.

My entry was my “Oh Canada Mittens” (bottom Left)

Made a mistake while watching the Bobsleigh during the Olympics. After some frogging I'm back on track ;0)

    Ok, I’m not sure which project I like the best! Your Canada mitts are AWESOME! I’m loving that shawl and the Leftover Cowl? Oooooh, I was looking at that on Rav but am still very shy about colorwork. I can’t wait to see yours.
