In thinking back over my ravelympics experience, I'm glad I did it. I completed a WIP that was started over two years ago - I am going to undo the bind off and lengthen it - I tried it on again over a long tank and I just am not the sort of person to pull it off. I'm thinking I'll enter it in the local country fair, so I am in no rush to lengthen it. I'm also going to keep on knitting Hemlock Ring. I've got plenty of yarn for it, so I might as well.
At the same time, I'm so glad that the olympics are over. I focused on just those projects plus one for Schaerfer yarn (which was finished yesterday, blocked and all - I should have made that a ravelympic project!). I want to work on something else! I've been looking through my project bags (all over the house) - I'm now going to focus on knitting stuff for a local craft fair I'm apply to (with peacefulknitter!). But it's more relaxed because those are smaller, easier projects and I can continue to work on things as needed (for test / sample knitting) or as I want!
