Oh yes, I joined both The Olympic Knitting over at The Yarn Harlottery and the Ravelympics. But then I got sidetracked and sprinted in an event I wasn’t even entered for. So no medals for me. But three completed projects (but out of contention). Sod the medals — medals don’t keep you warm, knitwear does (my chosen excuse).
Very happy with my new sideways, no-finishing, seamless (as in No Sewing — ok, a few stitches on one shoulder, but that’s it!) emil(ia) and the New & Improved placement of buttons (where they should have been all along). Hem and neck edging are knit as you go.
Y a r n : Karisma Superwash Wool (DK) — while knitting the yarn feels quite stiff and almost rough, but softens wonderfully after soaking. P a t t e r n: emil(ia)
The main obsession otherwise is still The Yarn Yard Clan.
Will post about the latest outbreak of Clan mania later.
Pity gloves are only for winter. I may have to move somewhere where there’s perpetual winter. But I refuse to take up lugeing. Or the skeleton.
