With a moist eye and a proud heart I stand before you as a gold medalist in the 2006 Winter Knitting Olympics. But it is not the medal I'll most remember from these last 17 days of competition -- no, my fellow knitlettes, it is the thought of the 1000s of knitters coming together in a spirit of goodwill and friendship as we strove to knit "swifter, higher, stronger"! Many thanks to our Olympic host, The Yarn Harlot!
Gorgeous! I love the bouquet...seriously;)

Perfect -- and I love that little edge of color at the bottom!

Gorgeous! And how fun was it that we all where knitting towards this common goal?
Have to say, I'm kind of sad to see it end!

You're too funny. Hope there weren't any streakers at your closing ceremony!
You know, yarn bouquets are a great idea - would make awesome gifts for yarny friends. :)

Congratulations! What a beautiful finished piece. Definitely the equivalent to a flawless triple lutz triple axle combination. :)

I love how yours turned out - it is really classy. I am afraid mine ended up in the frog pond. I really love your sleeves with that ribbing. I copied that, but it didn't help the biasing of the shrug part. Onward. thanks for the inspiration (as always)!
