The Ravelympics are finally upon us, dear readers, and overachiever/supah-freak that I am, I signed up for three, yes THREE, events: the hat half pipe, the sweaterboard, and the lace luge.
We'll get to the two latter events later, but first, I give you my first (and perhaps only) finished object of the 2010 Ravelympics.
Brooke's Column of Leaves Knitted Hat pattern, knit with Madelinetosh Tosh Worsted (the old worsted) in the Cherry colourway. Cast on at 9 PM on February 12th, and wove in the ends February 14th at roughly 12:30 (ish).
Pretty good time, considering the hectic schedule around here, but sadly nowhere near fast enough to put me anywhere near the virtual podium for this event.
I also cast on Laura Chau's Honeybee Cardigan for the sweaterboard event. I'm knitting this with Malabrigo sock yarn, and the pattern isn't exactly yer mindless knit, so it'll be interesting to see if I can finish this one before the closing ceremonies on February 28th.
"But what of the lace luge?" you may be asking. Well, I suppose I could have entered this project into that even as well, as there's a hefty amount of lace in the pattern. But noooOOOOOOooo, in a moment of what I can only deem absolute lunacy, I decided to tackle one of the Japanese crochet doily patterns from the book I showed you a few posts back. I figured that the Olympics, even the Knitting Olympics, were about challenging yourself.
Yeah, clearly I haz the insanity.
Happy Knitting Everyone!
