Ravelympics: The Knitting Begins

So, the sign-ups are done, the team is formed. We have a great, great team, you can find them here if you are on Ravelry.

My first and biggest project is a top-down raglan cardigan — I’m kinda following this pattern from Cosmic Pluto — but I’m sure I’ll make adjustments as I go along.

For training, I swatched the yarn (doubling it)

Now I have gathered the yarn and the pattern (still need to get the Knitpicks options put together), and I’m ready to cast on today!

  1. Hi Renee – I’m a knitting minister as well. I look forward to getting to know you through your blog (and feel free to check out mine as well…)

    However, since I’m not involved in the Knitting Olympics (yes, I read Mason-Dixon and the Yarn Harlot AND I’m on Ravelry–but I’m also working…), I have decided not to bug you with questions until that event is over. I will want to know about the afghan you put together, but it can wait (the baby won’t be born until February).

    Knit on!

    Judy
