The Games Have Begun!

On Friday the 12th the Winter Olympic games officially began – and so did the Ravelympics!

I woke up to record the opening ceremony (which I thought was stunning!) so we could watch it later at our convenience, and since I was up at 4 am Saturday anyway… I cast on for my project for the Vintage Bitches team – the Noble Cowl.

I’m now halfway through the chart the first time – the pattern calls for doing the chart 2-1/2 times.

A little later in the morning the Haifa contingent of  Team Falafel got together for a cast-on party.   Ayelet greeted us at the door

there were great decorations all over,

we had lots of good food, and I cast on for my next project, 198 yds of heaven.

Haven’t had much knitting time since then, but I have managed to finish the chart the first time…another 1-1/2 repeats and then the lace border chart.  I love how this pattern is working out!!  Even without blocking, the yarn is showing the lace.  Blocked it will be great.

I have another two projects in mind if I finish these – one a glove design, and another cowl.   And there may be a frogging event project as well…

Good luck to all athletes in Vancouver, and to all Ravthletes everywhere!  See you at the finish line!

    I’m really enjoying the Winter Olympics (although the weather has not been kind) and now we can all enjoy the Ravelympics too!

    What are you doing playing on the internet? Go knit!

    (That’s what Matt has said to me every time he’s caught me on the computer since Saturday morning.)
