Winter Ravelympics 2010

I decided to sign up again for another Ravelympics!! Last time I made the Ripple Skirt and was happy I steamed right thru that project b/c of the summer 2008 Olympics or I would have never done it!

Now I plan to use this lovely yarn (gifted by my very nice boss from Xmas)
That is Berroco in Vintage Wool. I luv the color and long yardage on this yarn!

I have my 1st skein wound and needles warmed up ready to go!
For Rosamund
She will be fondly called Crimsonmund ;o) and entering/competing in the 'Sweaterboard Cross Event' :)

Hopefully we will have a great knitting relationship together and make it to the finish line in 17 days!

Casting on will begin tonight 9PM EST during Opening Ceremonies!! Yayayay!

    To quote Tim Gunn, "I have all the confidence you can do it."
    The sweater is perfect for you. I've been eyeing myself. Good luck!
    And, may the games begin.

    I like! I plan on making the Dindy Beret and finishing some WIP's. I bought the yarn for the True Blood blanket but I doubt I will finish it.

    I'm just kind of on my own because the pressure is so great. I am making Citron in Olive. It's going okay thus far. Your project is going to be fab as usual. Good going, Stacey!

    Rosamund is going to look great in that crimson color!! I entered the WIP Dancing event and it motivated me to finish Mirepoix! I have a picture of it on my blog today but I still need to model it. What a relief to finish that sweater up at last - after over two years!
