Lots of new:

February 13th, 2010

The 2010 Ravelympics seem to be all people are talking about right now. Last night during the opening ceremonies, so many people I follow on Twitter were talking about casting on for their Ravelympic projects—I wanted to be part of it and cast on something new too. But what? There is currently a project I'm working on for Classic Elite's upcoming Fall photoshoot, and I need to get that finished, so I decided that I would not be joining the millions in casting on a new project.

However, upon further investigation of the different Ravelympic events, I found one that I think I can realistically compete in. The rules are simple—before the opening ceremonies, only pattern notes and the knitted garment can be completed. The goal is to complete the pattern and publish it within the next 17 days.

Back in July of 2008 I designed and knit this great little top with every intention to get it photographed, edited and published soon after I finished knitting—but for one reason or another, it didn't happen. So, this is my 2010 Ravelympic project—to finally publish this thing!

In other news… it snowed in Dallas the other day—a whole foot of it! I took the opportunity to photograph a few finished winter projects, and publish the patterns.

The Mighty Mittens are something I designed on a whim. To be honest, I'm not generally a mitten person, but I loved designing and knitting them! I'll be shipping these finished mitts back up to New England so someone in my family can give them propper use—in the more commonly chilly winter weather. I'm not expecting any more foot-deep snow storms here in Texas, but I'm not holding my breath either.

These were a lot of fun to knit—I love CEY's Princess yarn. It works up so well in Fair Isle, and it's so soft and pleasant to knit with… I've been considering knitting another pair of these—fingerless this time. I'd stop right after the beige and grey zig zag section… I'm not sure it'll happen, but I might use fingerless mitts more often than I'd use full-fingered mittens.

And because I love you all so much—here's a little Valentine's Day treat. Some cute little crochet hearts for you to make for yourself or to share with your loved ones.
