no medals

March 1, 2010

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.



emil(ia)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.

The Yarn Yard Saffron 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.
