Ravelympics

I temporarily changed my countdown banner to the Olympics to help
me remember when to cast on for the Ravelympics. Are you competing? I'm entering the Bag 'n Backstroke event and the Shawl Relay. I'll be making Turtle Girl's It Felt Random Bag. Yes, I've made it many times before, but I think if you are competing in the Olympics you should do something you know you are good at! For the Shawl Relay I'm leaning towards the My Blue Jeans crochet shawl by Knottie by Nature. That will probably be more of a challenge. The real challenge will be finishing both projects by the end of the games!
There is a new on line knitting magazine called Twist Collective ? It looks pretty interesting. I think I am spending more time reading on-line knitting magazines than I am actually knitting.
Hope you all had a great weekend - Monday morning comes all too soon!

I clicked on the link for the blue jeans crochet shawl and it showed this green cabled sweater. Funny thing I was just looking at that sweater on another blog... It's called Bonnie... beautiful but sure looks HARD.

I'll be cheering you on in the Ravelolympics

OMG, I am still laughing. I spent a good hour yesterday LOOKING for when it started, for the same reason. See, if I would have just kept up on my blog reading......
