Yep that's right I am getting myself ready for the summer Ravelympics!! :oD
I will be in the Synchronized Flirty Skirts & Sock Put events with Team Charlotte Purls and WIPs Wrestling event with Team Charlotte Yarn!! YAY!!
I made sure not to try and put too much on my knitting plate, and thinking that during the 17 days of the summer olympics that this is doable!
The most important thing for me in training is getting my mind right. Whew!
I have been wanting to do my indigo ripple skirt forever! Got the yarn last July! Studied the KAL board, made all the pertinent notes on my pattern, and just for some reason got stuck.....never casted on.
Which is why I signed up for Ravelympics!
And since I am already doing Summer of Socks (S.O.S.) I figured I would throw in a pair halfway thru and do the Anastasia with my new Noro sock yarn! In fact, I will be doing it as a mini KAL with a mini group of great ladies! :o)
Getting a long awaited WIP off my needles wouldn't hurt either. My second Lillian tank (Tangee) is waiting to be seamed and get some ribbed borders on the neckline and armholes (y'all know how much I just love that! Haha). The 1st one I made is in the mail and on the way to the birthday girl; but promise I won't be mad if she doesn't wear it! Haha! Lets just say it was a labor of love ;op Haha!
OOh! You gotta check out my gurl Shemeka's Ravelympic stitchmarkers!! Go get ready!!
We are having a F.U.N. time over in the Ravelympics Group! Come on by and join us before the big opening ceremony bang on August 8th!!
