I've finished my July Knit Something of the Month! This was And So Are You
(this name makes so much more sense in the context of the entire ebook than it does on a stand alone pattern - it's part of the Be Mine ebook), knit in my Wollmeise from last year's Camp Loopy. This was a fun pattern with just enough going on to keep my interest, but perfect for TV knitting. I've got to weave in ends and give it a light blocking, then Logan can model it for you next week, but I'm counting it finished now!
Today is the beginning of the Olympics, which for Olympic junkies like myself, is pretty huge. I've already reserved the biggest TV in the house for Opening Ceremonies tonight (it's the TV with the PS3 - reservations are essential). This also means that today is the beginning of the Ravellenic Games - where we push our knitting skills to the limits in honor of the athletes and their achievements. Cast on is at whatever your local time is when the Opening Ceremonies begin in London (that's 3:00 PM here in the DFW metroplex). I love the idea of thousands of knitters casting on at the same time, all across the globe. All the projects have to be completed by midnight local time on August 12, the day of Closing Ceremonies.
I will be participating this year and I will be making the Wrought Iron Cardigan
in Madelinetosh Vintage in Norway Spruce. I've got to do a gauge swatch this morning (swatching is considered training) and then I'll be ready to go this afternoon!
GO TEAM USA!
