And to answer Laura's question about the long lingering Lopi cardi, it still resides in the bag for now. I will have to take a look at it once things settle down and I'm situated here in my new home. :)

Marji, I didn't participate in the Knitting Olympics, unfortunately. I did work on a couple UFO's, but my race was with the boxes to be packed for the move! I am leaving many things packed up for a while, down in the cellar, so wish I had been in the olympic training camp (for the sport of organizing and packing well) ahead of time.

Ahhh, a chance to update...

I recently moved to NY, so am just now just getting back to the blog. I finished a few quick projects since my last post, and have a couple pics to post to get back to business.

Here is the nearly finished Funky Poncho in brights for a gift. I worked the striping on US 13 and am ready to go through and drop the stitches, then sew up the seam.

Here is the IHS that I worked up on US8 in the Blue Green from Malabrigo in Uruguay. The color variation is quite consistent in the greens and slight blues - the photo doesn't really do it justice. Aunt Betty very happy with this set, as it matches two of her coats (and she is ready for a cool St. Patrick's Day in Rochester).

Patti is working away on some projects - scarfs and clothes. Nicole and her daughter are working on their scarves - dressy ones that will suit the weather well into the spring.

I'm contemplating a summer scarf at the moment. Leaning away from some of the lovely wools in my stash, and looking at a few blends I have tucked away from years ago.
