  • Ravelympics is drawing to a close(less than an hour).  I have been pushing myself to finish the Pine Forest baby blanket that I have been working on for the eventgiantslalomghan. Most of my time this week has gone into trying completing this piece.  The time has come to put down my needles and officially call my games over.  I still hold my head high as I gave it a great effort to get done before the deadline but alas, it is still a work-in-progress.  I am confident I will finish this piece in the next few days.
  • I have had a blast being part of Velma’s (my sis-in-law)   Ravelympics Team COLORBOMBers.  Her main theme for our games was to “Have fun!” She makes beautiful, textural and colorful hand-spun art yarns.  Check out her Blog to see some pics from her projects(scroll down a bit on her main page).  Check out her Etsy shop to see the goodies she has for sale.
  • I am happy to say that my Mom loved the lace scarf that I made her 🙂
  • I want to pass along a special tip regarding that awesome chocolate cake recipe that I posted last week.  I froze several pieces(to prevent eating the entire cake in a few days) and thawed them in the refrigerator overnight.  It is still just as yummy!

That’s all for now as my hands are ready for some down time……I have put the needles away and am ready for some R & R.  What a fun experience this has been!!  Thank you!

Ravelympics is well under way and I have now received medals in two events!  GO TEAM COLORBOMBers!!  Woo Hoo!!!

I received this as my first medal.  I completed my first evah lace piece.  I am excited to say that I learned several knew stitches to make this project.  This piece of momentous occasion is destined for a very special recipient so pictures on this blog will have to wait a little bit longer. 🙂

This was my second medal for my speedily ripping out of a project abandoned many, many moons ago.  The yarn has been reclaimed and will be used in another project, possibly before the completion of Ravelympics.

I have been reading The Lacy Knitting of Mary Schiffmann by Nancy Nehring.  Well, I write that I am reading it, but it is full of patterns.  I am familiarizing myself with reading charts and patterns.

In short, my world is full of fiber arts through the end of Ravelympics.  So be prepared for more fiber related posts for the next two weeks.  For those not part of Ravelry, I will be including some pics for you too in the upcoming posts.  Keep an eye out.
