Ravelympics: Ready, Set, Go

6 a.m. MDT: Casting on for the first event! I asked Pedro to carry the flame but decided that might be a bad idea. All I could visualize was him running through the house with his tail on fire. So I opted for his participation in spirit only.

I cast on the first felted Moebius basket and got mostly through the handle before I had to head out for my dayjob. My goal for this weekend is to finishing the knitting of the two baskets.

I plan to watch the opening ceremonies tonight while knitting round and round on the body of the basket. Pedro will be helping by laying on my TV tray and patting at the yarn as it comes out of the ziplock bag.

Members of my coaching staff were ready to go before the official cast on and just wanted to wave hello to all watching the festivities.
Hope you are planning fun events for this weekend!

Oh dear - please do keep Pedro away from flames.

Go Team Go!! Hope you had a productive weekend.

(And I can't remember if I told you this, but Pedro was completely right about where my lost cable needle was - it had wandered to the bottom of a different knitting bag. THANKS Pedro!!)
