The Winter Olympics are coming this Friday, and with them another type of Olympics - the Ravelry-Olympics (or Ravelympics)!!! Ravelry is like facebook but for knitters and crocheters, and a very awesome place to find patterns, meet other knitters, and get inspired to knit cool things. :)
The purpose in Ravelympics is to stretch yourself in your knitting. To knit something you've never tried before, but always wanted to. Or to learn a few new stitches and put them into practice. I have lofty knitting goals for these Ravelympics, but I think they are obtainable and I'm set to finish and win GOLD! :)
Here's my list of things I'd like to complete:
Daybreak shawl by Stephen West (I'm 1/4 done)
2 pairs of Bubble baby socks
1 pair of Dragonfly socks for Sammie
1 pair of Monkey socks for me
1 pair of French Press Knits Felted Slippers
March's Knit-Along Pattern
Additionally, I'd like to create a few youtube videos on how to do some of the stitches we are using in my knitting class. This would be a great reminder for class members during the month, and for those attempting the patterns long distance.
Will you take the Ravelympics challenge too?
