It is Olympics time

I am so excited! Last night we had an Enrichment activity and the woman that was sitting next to me pulled out some knitting and started working on it. I was thrilled to be able to talk knitting with her. We even chatted about Ravelry and the Ravolympics (squee! I am so excited to have a knitting buddy in my ward).

I joined team Knitting Bloggers (Go knitting bloggers!!!) for the Ravolympics and am entered in the WIPs (works in progress) Wrestling. I have some things that I have stopped working on and that I wanted to get finished, so I thought this would be the best event. Don't worry, I am not planning on knitting in a singlet. Here are the projects I want to finish (I really need to stop starting so many projects!).


Here is another soaker for Parker. It has been languishing in my knitting bag ever since our house hunting trip to Kansas last April. I have pulled out a few times to knit on, but did not make significant progress. It really should be done and on Parker's designer bum right now.

Here is another leftover from the house hunting trip. I finished the first one here in Kansas but second sock syndrome has been beating me silly. I just have a few more inches on the foot and then I need to add in the heel and I will be done.



This is an unofficial entry and will only be brought out when I am done with the other two. It is a lace stole so I have a ton more to do still. I didn't want to make it the main WIP because I knew I would be hard pressed to finish it in 17 days.

Also in my knitting bag is my pay it forward projects. I have two started with major progress made on both and I have another one that I have yet to even cast on for. But for now I will be concentrating on finishing my older projects.

Yeah, um, is it bad that I'm more excited about your knitting than the "real" Olympics? Other than being mad that they gave it to a country with such an atrocious environmental and social record, I kinda could care less...

What great motivation to finish up some loose ends! And I would love to see a knitted singlet :).

I love your new layout! Sorry I haven't been by in such a long time - we have been SOOOOO busy. :-) I think things are calming down and getting back to normal. Looks like you will have lots of fun with all that knitting!

Thanks for stopping by my blog. I have to tell you - - we're twinners when it comes to sick husbands. Oh the drama. And this knitting... the socks.... it's cracking me up. Is that wrong?
