Just 2 days to go before the Ravelympics 2008 kicks off and I’ve been swatching away. After two attempts, I’m still not sure what needle I’m using. I started on a #2 but the fabric was so dense and tight. Now I’m up to a 4. We’ll see. My goal is 6 sts to an inch.
I’m part of Team Knitting Camp and my project is the New Zealand Pullover by Elizabeth Zimmerman (of course). All the members of the team are knitting EZ or Meg Swansen projects. Can you tell we are all still a bit “homesick” for camp. My event is the Sweater Sprint. This is going to be so much fun.
Here’s my yarn selection. Pretty huh? Shetland 2 Ply Jumper Yarn, color #3. It’s like oatmeal with some maple syrup stirred in. I have 13 skeins which should be more than enough.
Can you picture a better color for me? No, it’s not brown but it’s still earthy.
Yesterday I had a major wake up call of sorts. I was reading over the Ravelympics boards and noticed the Time Zone Converter. That right folks, we’re suppose to cast on during the opening ceremonies which begin at 8pm Beijing time. What time is that where you live boys and girls? Here in Nueva York that’s going to be 8 am. Thank God I don’t live in Hawaii, their start time is 2am…Ouch! But I’d still be up knittin’.
