First of all, I just wanted to show off my new sox that I finished yesterday. I know it doesn’t have anything to do with Ravelympics, but I will get to that in a minute. I used the pattern for Pompom Peds that I got for free on Ravelry. I made them with Artyarns UltraMerino 4 handpainted sockyarn that I bought at my LYS. This was such beautiful yarn and such a pleasure to work with. There is nothing like putting on a high quality pair of hand knit sox, especially when you made them for yourself.
Now on to the Ravelympics. I have decided to participate with the Itty Bitty Knits group on Ravelry. For my project, I am going to be making the February Lady Sweater for myself. This will be the first adult sweater I have made. I Made my first order from Knit Picks for this project and it will be made of Swish Worsted in squirrel Heather. I chose the color because it reminds me of the squirrels that play in our yard. I can’t wait to cast on tonight during the opening ceremonies of the Olympics. I bought the buttons at my LYS, but I might go with some wooden ones instead.
