It’s unexpectedly fun to knit something while having no idea what it’s going to turn out to be.

Although my gauge was spot on, the recommended yardage wasn’t enough and I couldn’t get another skein of yarn A. For the second wing, I did 3 garter ridges of B and 2 of A -- a mod that’s visible if you look closely, but not conspicuous, I don’t think.

I had planned to finish this by the end of the Rav Games, but I wasn’t prepared for the sheer volume of knitting in clue 4. The partially finished picture, about a third of the way through the second wing, shows where I was in the closing ceremonies. First time I haven’t finished a Ravelympics project on time, but I suppose it’s easier to finish if you have the whole pattern in advance.
