I wasn’t going to do the Knitting Olympics…not because I didn’t want to but because I didn’t pick a project and just didn’t get around to committing. Well, yesterday I was hit with the inspiration bug and now officially have a new project�??unfortunately, I think it is too late for me to join the official Olympics Knitting group. I left a comment saying I wanted to participate but it may be too late for me. Of course, that doesn’t mean I can’t still do it. So if I don’t get in I will just have to be a renegade and do it on my own…or with my sister/roommate who unknown to me also has been eyeing this project and when I brought it up to her yesterday we both decided to knit it at the same time. So if I can’t be an Olympic Knitter, then at least I can be in a knit-a-long with my girl Kara. So you want to know what we are kitting?…
Since I am a total copy cat and really pick a lot of my projects from all the amazing bloggers out there, I first saw these knit up by Eunny and feel in love. She is obviously an incredibly talented knitter (I also just bought her original pattern for a Deep V Argyle Vest ) and has a great blog. The socks are from Nancy Bush’s Folk Socks book. I went to my LYS yesterday and got my yarn. I bought Dale of Norway Baby Ull in Dark Navy (Main Color), Beige (Contrast Color), and Baby Blue (Top Accent Color). Honestly, I am a little scared about how the colors will turn out. I hope they work the way I want them too. I will take pictures of the yarn and my progress this weekend. I am very excited for these…my first attempt at fair isle and if successful, my first completed pair of socks.
So I finished my Stained Glass Scarf but don’t have pictures to show yet. I think I want to block it a little longer�??I made it shorter then the pattern specified partly because I thought it was fine but mostly because I didn’t want to break into my third skeins. I will post pictures and give my full notes of the knit this weekend. Really, I promise I will.
Happy Olympic Knitting!
