Ravelympics 2010 - Day 15

Bob:  We're back at the 2010 Ravelympics, and after 15 grueling days, Ms. Sutton has just crossed the finish line for the Sweaterboard Cross.

Ron:  Well, I don't mind admitting that I never thought she would pull it off.  And entire sweater in 15 days--and by a woman who actually set aside a nearly-completed sweater for almost 2 entire years before sewing the sweater seams.

Bob:  You certainly make a good point, Ron.  This is well outside of Ms. Sutton's usual knitting behavior.  She has really been pushing hard during the games.

Ron:  She certainly has.  And her support team has truly been phenomenal.  Theo was on hand for the entire final push.
and her very patient husband has been cheering her on during the entire event.  

Bob:  Do we have a shot of him as well.

Ron:  No--apparently he has left on an "emergency white chocolate martini run," and is unavailable for comment.

Bob:  How about an interview with Ms. Sutton?

Ron:  I'm afraid when last seen, Ms. Sutton was running out the door screaming "anything but knitting!" and hasn't been seen since.  Authorities are on the lookout for her in the next three counties. They're hoping to catch her before she reaches Canada and the other Olympics games going on.

Bob:  Keep it here for continued coverage of the 2010 Ravelympics and the efforts to track down Ms. Sutton......

Hooray! Gorgeous finish! And you get to wear it everywhere... unlike an actual gold medal, which can be awkward to work into your everyday life. And thanks for the bonus pics of Theo, who I suspect is glad you're swearing off knitting for a while, 'cause then you two can sew together! Smart kitty.

It's a sweater! And a beautiful one at that. Not only did you finish your event, you provided amusing commentary about your progress. Congrats!

Whoo-hoo! And the crowd goes wild! Beautiful work Toni!

(And my verification word is 'snotino' doesn't that sound like some kind of celebratory drink to you?)

Gorgeous!!!!! Wonderful finish. Enjoy your well earned Chocolate Martini and bonding time with Theo. Isn't it amazing what one can achieve when we really put our minds to it????
By the way, my vest is being sewn and finishing edges as the final push for me, hehe. You did great!
