Ravelympics: midway report

I think I'm starting to get the hang of this:

There is now a faint possibility that I might finish the third bobbin before the closing ceremonies. Faster, wasn't it?

Ravelympics 2010 - Day One

I should've probably started the year by recapping the previous year, but eh. Maybe later. For now, I'm in the Ravelympics, trying to complete a WIP - spinning 100g of merino top into 3-ply sock yarn. Here's what I started with:

I figure since I started that last December (I think) and have managed only 5 min every now and then, I'll have more than enough challenge trying to spin it all in little over two weeks.

And progress for day 1? I did manage to make that length of top noticeably shorter, and bake both cookies and bread (from the 5-minute artisan bread recipe by Jeff Hertzberg and Zoë François), so even if I don't reach my goal, at least I won't starve trying.
