Ok, lots of you have heard by now about the Ravelympics. Some of you may be sick of hearing about it already, sorry, you're about to see 2 weeks worth of FO's. The idea is to try knitting something in 17 days that challenges you. Well most of you know all the stuff going on in my house, so hey, finishing anything lately can be a challenge in itself.
So with lots of car knitting coming up during the 2nd week, I figured some easy projects and some using of the *cough* sock yarn stash, doubled...yeah all the yarns will be doubled. Just finished a mess'o'knots from winding the yarn doubled too...
My goal is 4 hats and 4 cowls...we'll see how I do.
My first 2 projects are for the Cowl Jump and Hat Dash
Chickadee Cowl (on the right sidebar under free patterns) using
STR Watermelon Tourmaline, medium weight.
Koolhaas Hat using STR Heavyweight in the Rare Gems colorway.
Here it looks like Mochaberry, hmmm. Both courtesy of my personal BMFA shopper ;)
Um..could you tell what team I'm on?? Blue Moon! I think they both go together well. Although I see more browns on the bottom cake than I do IRL hmmmm...stay tuned!
This is perfect timing for me, really, gives me something else to concentrate on other than the fact in 8 days...yes, 8 days we leave to take my college man to Maine... **must concentrate on the lobster...yeah the lobster**
