Kym's Final Four

March Madness continues here at The Edge.  But I'm not talking basketball. . .


It's been a wild month. . . and as we near the end, I've got my Final Four! 

"Finish Black Cardigan" beat out "Garden Plans" in a blowout.


(More details about this baby in a later post.  For now, let's just try not to notice that my house was pelted by an egg.  I have no idea why.  I don't even have kids at home anymore.  I thought those days were gone with the finish of high school.  Who knew?)

"Finish Black Cardigan" was heavily favored at the opening of this year's tourney, being well under way already at the beginning of the month.  The unexpectedly warm weather totally freaked out "Garden Plans," making them skittish under pressure.

In the next bracket, "Photo Class" barely squeaked out a win over "Messenger Bag for Erin." 


Admittedly, this is the weakest of the brackets.   "Messenger Bag" didn't get much thought or consideration at all.  As for "Photo Class" -- at least the sign-up is complete.  (The homework?  Not so much.)

Next up. . . it appears that "Tote Bag for Sandie" might actually be the Cinderalla story this season!


Yes,"Tote Bag" completely overwhelmed "Begin Shawl" in a stunning overtime showdown.  This was a surprise, as "Begin Shawl" seemed to be a big favorite in this year's tournament -- and really, who had ever heard of "Tote Bag" before this win?

Finally, "Colorwork Bag" beat out "Mosaic Flower Pots" at the buzzer.


It's really not clear, though, whether "Colorwork Bag" will be able to maintain the momentum needed to take it all the way!  It looks like strong early efforts . . . might result in running-out-of-yarn to complete the project on time.

Stay tuned!

Hahaha!!! Your post had me in stitches! Pardon the pun!


Um, your maple tree is leafing? You're yard is WAY ahead of ours.
There's always a blowout and, a along the way, there's always a ball dropped. Love the sweater and the tote bag!


Your approach to this is fantastic, thanks for the fun spin on what you're doing these days!


So funny and a great format! That sounds like the sportscaster for all my projects on the bench...wishing they got more playing time.


crafts reign - and knitting wins two spots...and at least in my book, the championship! that black cardi is a winner for sure!


It all looks really good! You've been busy!!
What the heck?!?...your house got egged?


Hehehee,,, you are the best in telling stories and your black cardi is a real beauty!


Loved this post - and I love that Colorwork Bag...


Oh, how fun!! What a great idea for a post. Love that black cardigan, so looking forward to details.

Now that my teams are out, this is THE Final Four I'll follow! Go Kym!


I'm one of Mary's knitters so I vote for the cardigan.
