Welcome to the Finish Lines!
Today was the last official day of the Ravelry Games, called Ravellenics 2012.
This was my first time competing, and I had a blast! I found out that I must have improved my knitting speed, or else I wouldn't have been able to knit as many projects in these last few weeks.
Although I did not make it to the Finish Line for all the events I started, I did make it for a few of them. Here are the events that I have earned Podium calls for, thus earning a badge (metal) for my blog.
The next event for me was WIP Wrestling, which was a big deal for me. I finally finished that shawl I was making for my Nanna's (now overdue) birthday present. I had gotten stuck when running out of yarn right before the bind off row. Now it's finally done!!!
This cute stuffed guitar also happens to be my first knitted stuffed toy project. All my kids thought it was a cool project, and I now have requests from little kids to make more of them.
I knitted an awesome striped scarf using Noro yarn in the Scarf Hockey event, which I named "Thinking of Calgary".
Then I used some other Noro to make this felted belt: Emma likes it so much that she would like me to knit her one as well. It was just an easy seed stitch (k1, p1 one row, for 9 stitches, then p1, k1 the next row).
So for the Frogging Trampoline event, I frogged back these mmmalabrigo mitts in order to give them new life as the proper size they deserve to be. Nicole will enjoy them much better when they aren't squeezing the circulation out of her hands.
