Are you knitting anything during the Olympics? Doing some ravelympic knitting? (GASP) I know you’re not supposed to call it that any more, but it’s still that to me. (2012 Yarn Harlot got a stern talking to/threatened by the Olympics and had to change the name to the ravellenic games.)
Often people pick a project and cast on at the beginning of the Olympics, knit away and try to complete by the end of the events. I decided I had quite enough WIPS (works in progress) and didn’t need to cast anything else on until I got things under control. My Olympic knitting is to FINISH ALL THE THINGS!! I do, in fact, feel like a champion! So far, I’ve just bound off the Fancy Ribbed Cowl I’d been knitting a row or two on over the last 6 months. YAY ME! Pattern: Fancy Ribbed Cowl by Chery Allison. Yarn: Sparkle Toes in colorway Pieces of Eight by Treasure Goddess (me). I still have to seam up the ends and weave in the ends, but I hope to have this complete by Monday!
I’ve also got a silk cowl in progress, a couple of sweaters that need sleeves (I know, I always put those off) and a knitted DRESS that needs its hem sewed and ends woven in. I’d better get busy!
What’s your Olympic knitting project? It’s a great excuse to sit & watch some amazing athletes and knit the day and night away.
