Ravelympics Day 1
Like Julie mentioned below, this Ravelympics is an outstanding concept/idea. From the interfaces Casey has made to all the crazy groups and teams. One can now spend even more time on Ravelry than they thought humanly possible. And The best part of all? IT MAKES ME FEEL LIKE KNITTING! I cast on for Kiri just before the games begun so I'll be entering into Wips Wrestling as part of Team Canada.
On that note let me show you the goods...
I'm using one skein of Alpaca with a Twist - Fino
and the first progress photo (taken Aug.2, now on 5th repeat)
It's such a beautiful color that I get excited each time I see it!
The actual lace repeat is easy and quickly memorized...having never made anything in laceweight (and finished it) this is crucial. I'm going to knit as much as I can today. Lets see how many repeats I can get through!
I've got my knitting mojo back! yay!@
