For the XXX Summer Olympics?!! I can't wait! My sister and I are already planning an opening ceremonies viewing party!
Of course, around here, the Olympics also mean the Knitting Olympics, or as they are called this year, the Ravellenic Games.
I know I'll be joining Team Plucky and Team Smackdown Smashdown! I can't wait to participate, but I'll admit, I haven't trained properly. I have a gazillion projects I think I might do and really have only committed to one, I think.
I want to knit this shawl, but with two colors, to give another option when I publish the pattern. I'm leaning towards the dark black with the blue, but have wavered between the cream and blue and the grey and blue too. See, I'm so not prepared.
After that, I'm just not sure. My list has varied between the following:
blackberry brambles shawl
Cotty fingerless mitts
baby snowboarder hat
another Dotty hat (another in progress new design)
completely new design (sorta thinking not at this point)
socks, because you can never have enough, right Dad?
We'll see. I still have another day and most of the "other" projects are a bit smaller. What do you guys think? Any opinions? Thoughts? Oh, and I do have to finish the current design I'm doing for Sunshine Yarns, so that is going to cut into my time a bit too.
So have you guys all decided what you are knitting? Are you like me and haven't quite decided? Just in case you are I'm offering a special sale this week! In the spirit of the 30th Summer Olympics, I'm offering a 30% off individual Irish Girlie Knits Designs from now until July 31! Just enter the coupon code: goforgold in your Ravelry shopping cart.
