Ravelympics


I'm entering the Stash Compulsory Jump on Team Whoduknit in the Ravelympics and have finally decided on my project and yarn I dug out this great vintage yarn, given to me by a friend. It's 100% wool in a Natural color. The project will be a neck warmer scarf called Sunray in a diagonal herringbone stitch. The idea is to Cast On during the opening ceremonies and to knit the project while watching the Olympics, finishing up by the Closing Ceremonies.

I've been doing more crocheting lately. This is called Earth and Sun by Lisa Gentry and is the February Contest Project on the Lisa Gentry Ravelry Group. It's meant to be a baby blanket, but I think it will become a lapghan for me instead. It's crocheted with some more of the vintage wool gifted to me (thanks again Roni!).

I made that scarf out of plymouth mulberry merino. It is a quick, fun knit.
