Ravelympics 2010!

The official events list has been released: click here!

I'm really excited about the Aerial Unwind, aka The Frogging Event.  I've got three projects that need frogging, and have needed it for years.  They will be tackled.  I think I am also going to make a scarf -- shocker, I know!

Are you participating?  What are your plans?

Branching Out

From socks and scarves, at least. To dishcloths, which I've never knit before. Nope. I wasn't planning on making more cloths any time soon, actually, 'cause I have quite a few, but then Kris started a mystery knit-a-long! I've never done a mystery KAL before, because they are usually for large projects (shawls, etc.) and I don't often have too much time to knit, and I don't want to spend that much time on a pattern that I might end up disliking. But one dishcloth per month? I can handle that. Kris's patterns are great, and even if it turns out awful, it will still wash my face or dishes very nicely. I can't wait to see what it ends up being. There's a photo of what it looks like after the first clue after the jump!

Smitten With Scarves

I wish I had exciting things to blog about, y'all. Really, I do. But I'm still on my Sock & Scarf kick, leaning heavily toward scarves. And shawlettes, which are basically scarves...and my current favorite way to use some of my FFtC yarn, which I've lately been completely unable to stop purchasing. I made a Lacy Baktus and a Multnomah. I don't like the LB pictures, but here's the Multnomah back when it was still in progress:

I've currently got three scarves in progress, and once again, no pictures of them, or none that I really like. (Seeing a trend? Now you understand the lack of blogging...)

Now that it's 2010, I'm supposed to be working on a sweater, but...

This yarn is crying out to be my fourth scarf-in-progress...
