Farewell Olympics

I've enjoyed watching the Winter Olympics. My favorite was the figure skating, but all of it was pretty entertaining. I had joined the Ravelympics thinking I'd have a lot of time to knit during the past two weeks. Well, I only got one project done. A hat. Tried to get a pair of mittens done, too, but only got one done. My wrists, right shoulder, and elbow rebelled against me. :( The heart and mind were willing but parts of the body weren't.

This is my Bella's hat. I used Garn Studios Eskimo yarn that I purchased at Yellow Dog Knitting here in Eau Claire. It was a fun project. I made one for Maggie in December.
I highly overestimated my ability, but it was fun trying. Now it's just back to knitting at my leisure. I will finish a pair of mittens for Maggie and a pair for her boyfriend sometime this week and then my goal is to cast-on for a sweater for me.

Happy knitting!!!
