A Little of the Second Sock

I finally cast on for the second sock and got going on it.  (Here’s the Rav project page.)  I also began designing another shawl yesterday!  I hope to get the chart made and start knitting on it today.

What I’ve been spending most of my knitting time doing over the last week has been trying to pick a project for the Ravellenics.  If I was smart, I would choose my Babette and get it finished once and for all.  I really don’t want to work on a Work In Progress though, I want to start something new.  On the other hand, this will be the first time I’m homeschooling while I’m knitting along with our athletes, so I don’t foresee any epic knitting projects happening.  I could choose several small projects, like I did the first year (I knit four pairs of socks that year), or I could choose a single bigger, yet still sensible project.  I’ve got some ideas marked in Ravelry but these range from a shawl to a cardigan to a blanket.  Not all of the ideas are exactly sensible.

So, if you’re going to knit for the Ravellenic Games, what are your project plans?

I'm in the same boat - thinking I should finish a bunch of WIP's but really wanting to cast on something new for the Games. Still rumbling about the house trying to decide, but I think the WIP's are going to win.

Your socks are looking great. I can't wait to see what you decide to work on during the Olympics. I'm casting on socks Feb. 1 for a KAL and hope to finish them by Feb. 13 to wear on Valentine's Day. It's going to be CLOSE. :)

I want to make a cardigan, but I've been having trouble figuring out which pattern to make.

The Babette would be challenging - definitely in the spirit of the games. Am did love to see how it looks finished!
