Faster, Higher, Stronger...bring it on...

Well, I was thinking it's time to resurrect the blog...and what better time than the Knitting Olympics?

There's lots of talk over on Ravelry about the Ravelympics and technically I've joined the "sweaterboard" event but I didn't actually join a team. I thought about joining one of the podcast teams but I listen to so many! So, this morning, I was catching up on Yarn Harlot's blog and read about the Knitting Olympics. I remember reading about them the last time around...and figured, why not?

So, I throw my hat in the ring...I will be casting on for the Heather Hoodie Vest (rav link) tomorrow night during the opening ceremonies. It's not my first sweater but definitely my first big project with cables...we'll see how it all goes! I'm very excited! It's a pattern that I've wanted to knit for awhile but I had other things on the needles that needed finishing (or almost finishing) first.

In the meantime, I finished up a pair of socks for my mom which were supposed to be mine but I made the first foot more size 9.5 than 8 so, voila!, socks for Mom! I also finished 1/2 of a pair of "no purl monkeys" made out of Yarn Pirate's Daffodilly colorway. So cheery and fun! Also started a Multonomah but no pics yet. Everything gets put on hold tomorrow, though!

Let the games begin!!!!

Woo hoo! I am so glad that you are back!

Like Nemo and friends say.. "keep knitting" and GO FOR THE GOLD!
