Knitting Community

I'm so excited about the Ravelympics that I had to write an extra post. I just received my official name badge for the Knit Picks Enablers team:

...and the yarn I've already washed and dried is wound into balls:

...and I did a "practice CO" for my baby beanie so I wouldn't be stuck with not enough tail for my long-tail CO. I marked the place that allows enough yarn, and took it out. I'm ready to go. Here's my yarn:

It's KP's Simply Cotton Worsted in "Marshmallow." I have it entered in the Junior Olympics event. I should be done with it by Monday and will try to post a photo, although my project for the other event will be a killer. I probably won't finish it by the end of the Olympics. The event is "Fleece to FO Long Track," and it requires that we spin at least 4 oz during the competition and knit or crochet our project until it's finished. The Landscape Shawl would probably take me two weeks if I had nothing else to do, but I have a busy schedule the next two weeks. Next time I'll try to plan better. Happy knitting everyone, and enjoy the Olympics! --P

In the category, "Fleece to FO Long Track," I did about 30 rows today. It would have been more, but the rows are getting longer and we went out to the theater tonight. When they announced that we should put away any cell phones or other device that might disturb our neighbors. I asked DH if that included my knitting, and a couple of ladies turned around and laughed as if they knew what that meant to me. Knitters? --P

So what weight yarn are you knitting again? Or is it better to say how many wraps per inch? Either way it is looking really pretty. I'm with Susan spin,spin,spin!

Once again you've left me in the dust I'm getting used to it and no longer
feel the least bit bad about it. I LOVE that little hat. It is absolutely darling.
Lucky, lucky baby. I'll just sit in the stands and cheer you on. I think that's
a very important task. So, RAH, RAH, RAH! -- Judith

Sunday night, and I've just made it to the second pattern addition:

I'm off to spin for a while. I still have at least 3 oz left to spin and ply for this project! --P

I went to the Knit Picks Swap group here and joined. Then I went to the "Knit Picks Enablers 2010" thread and posted that I wanted to participate. Are you signed up for any events? You can start any time. If you're not signed up, read the instructions here. You just need to set up a project page with the tags of the Ravelympics, team and event. You don't need to be on a team, though. --P
