Well I have! Carolyn asked me to join Team Overly Ambitious, Yet Plausibly Possible (OAYPP). I wonder why she thought of me?
Since I hadn't joined any teams yet (actually I hadn't really thought about it too much) I figured why not?...it might be fun. I signed up for only two events: Sock Put and Home-Stuff Hammerthrow. My reasoning being, first I wanted to challenge myself...socks are not a fast and easy knit for me and I haven't knit any for a while, plus I do have yarn in my stash. Second home-stuff, well that's easy knitting and perfect for when I'm on the go. I don't take socks with me for a take along project (fear of losing my dpn's) and I figured out that some cloths or pot holders might be the way to go. You never know I might just pull off knitting a couple. We'll just have to see how it goes. I'm ready. Let the games begin. Read up on Ravelympics including the rules here just in case you might want to join in the fun!
Not to bore you, but I just finished another Ballband Appliance Cover. This time the cover is for my Kitchen Aid Mixer. This one matches my toaster cover and my Oster Kitchen Center Cover.
Well, almost. The second cone of peppercorn ombre was a different dye lot, so there is a variation in the colors, and shading. Not perfect, but I can live with the difference. I don't think the average person would notice the difference.
Remember my textured painted dishcloths? Well, they were inspiration for Patrica's knitting students (I mentioned her email to me in this post). She kindly sent me photos of their creations for me to show off. (I wish I could have made the photos larger, but this is what she sent me.) I think they are lovely and this type of knitting makes for one of a kind items, hands down!
Speaking of showing off, have you checked out my Knitting Friend's Gallery recently? I've added lots of photos of beautiful items knit with my patterns. I'm really amazed at all of the beautiful handiwork!! Thank you everyone for allowing me to post your photos :) For those of you who have knit up some of my patterns, be sure and let me know if you have any photos you would like to add to the line-up. Thanks. I really love showing them off :)
Now I'm going to try and catch up on my blog reading. I just don't know where the time goes and I have no idea why I keep on getting so far behind? Most importantly I hope everyone manages to get in lots of happy knitting this weekend :)
