Last week I was so focused playing Ravelympics I just didn't notice when Thursday came by. This week I'm still busy. I wish I could say I'm still working on my goal of finishing a shawl in 2 weeks, but alas, I received my very first sock yarn and started my very first real proper sock. Of course, that can only mean one thing: HNT pic that makes no sense and has no context.

I'm now midway on the 6th part of the shawl, so it's time for an update. Bad, bad pics this time. Most of them taken on the evening, and the yellow background doesn't much help.
The Alchemists Guild Exploded Again
The Pointless Albatross

I signed up for the Ravelympics for the Team Ankh-Morpork Knitters' Guild, and started knitting for the Shawl Relay on Friday Evening, about 8 hours after the starting time (the start of the Olympic Games opening ceremony). I'm knitting an Igorized Shawl (the Summer Sampler Study, modified for my yarn and with a Discworld theme). So far, I have 2 of the lace patterns ready.
The first panel (Hurricane Fence originally) is my Watchhouse Cells lace:
Second pattern (the Garden Trellis) represents the Sapient Pear Tree Leaves:
So far things are going almost twice as far as I had planned, even though I had a delay on the first day.
