Ravelympics Finish Line

I made it across the Ravelympics Finish Line tonight at 5:23pm! Finished with a few days to spare this time around. At the 2006 Olympics, First Aid came in close with about 15 minutes to spare!

Team Give Em Hill Knitters
Pattern: Daytrip Cardigan by me
Yarn: Lanas Puras Clarissa in Granite
Needles: Sizes 7 and 5
Start Time: August 8th 9:22am
Finish Time: August 22nd 5:23pm

Mods: I’m really a size S, but I wanted a nice tight fit around the bust, so I went with the XS instead. I lengthened the armhole by 1/2” to match the S, but didn’t have to modify the sleeve cap at all.

I also changed the location of the buttonholes adding one to the neck trim instead of all 6 on the center front placket.

the cardigan is cute and congratulations on finishing, but my question is more about your pin. I was just wondering if you'd rather go for McCain since Hillary's not on the ticket? I've seen a lot about that lately and just wondering what your opinion is. I just don't know how many people are going over to McCain because they really think he's the best if Hillary isn't running, or if it's because they're mad at Obama.
