After last year's spectacular lack of success in the Tour knitalong I decided to retire from knitalong career and just spectate this year. There must be something of the Lance Armstrong about me though, just can't let this cycling go as it suddenly occurred to me last week that I am in fact knitting a maillot jaune!
I may even finish it in time for Paris though I have some non-knitting festival fun to distract me this weekend. Even if it takes me another week or two to do the arms and button bands it will still be my quickest garment ever, probably one of my fastest knits of any kind - an aran weight in a cropped, seamless design would have been the perfect choice for a Tour cardigan something I would never have attempted with my snail like knitting! Given the beautiful 'Sunny' shade of All Seasons Cotton and that her name is Miette I'm hopeful that the signs are there for a victorious ride in to Paris on Sunday.
