Training Continues for Ravelympics


Time is ticking down on the countdown clock outside the USOC.

So far I have knit gauge swatches to determine I have the right yarn for the right needles for the pattern. I watched videos on making bobbles for my Cowl Jump event. I will be knitting the Aibhlinn Cowl from Knitty.com.

All I have left to do is practice the moebius cast on. I think that I will do that event first in the knitting line up so I can keep the cast on fresh in my mind. Those projects are for the Holiday Handball event. I chose that because they will ultimately be Christmas gifts.


And while I am readying my supplies and practicing my technique I will think about the lovely, soothing sounds of the fountain and remember that knitting is a stress release technique for me.

Hope all of you have great events planned for the next two weeks.

Good luck! From my understanding, you are allowed to cast on at 6am tomorrow.

I will be with you in spirit, since I don't think I'll be able to participate for real (just too busy at work right now).
