There's been lots of knitting going on!
I did, indeed, finish up my Obstacles wrap the other day.
|Obstacles Wrap - Anne Hanson/Knitspot - Sanguine Gryphon Skinny Bugga Florida Blue Centipede|
And there it sits....
along with the pieces of my Hayward sweater!
Waiting for blocking.....and the sweater still needs seamed too!
In my defense, I have been trying (unsuccessfully) to find
one of the large gridded blocking boards.
Do you think I can find one? OMG it's ridiculous!
I thought I had found one online finally,
only to get my payment refunded saying they are backordered.
the pile to be blocked grows.
In the meantime,
I did decide to participate in the Ravellenics!
And being a huge knitting podcast JUNKIE with a capital J...
I joined Team Sasquatch!
I'm participating in Sock Hockey
and the Hat Halfpipe!
That's String Theory Colorworks Entanglement yarn in the Temporal Rift colorway
on the left....and on the right...squish Bugga! from The Verdant Gryphon
in the Western Corsair colorway.
If you aren't familiar with the Ravellenics,
the intent is that you challenge your knitting self with a project
or projects during the span of the Olympic Games.
There are "events" and you "compete"...
though actually you're competing against yourself!
So I decided to challenge myself by knitting a complete pair of socks...
my first PATTERNED socks, mind you...
a Sockhead hat
during the Winter Games.
And I must say things are going well!
I cast on promptly at 10:00am, Friday February 7.
Which is when the opening ceremonies began over in Russia.
I'm knitting Groovy Socks (free pattern here)
And I already have one done and off the needles!!!
The Sockhead Hat came off the needles last night!
On to that second sock....
