Since Ravelry is hosting Ravelympics during the winter Olympics and I decided to join I assume I should blog a little about it as well.
As my first event I choose Mitten Moguls and Cable Cross-Country, I'm competing with my mittens. Pattern is Bella's Mittens by Marielle Henault. Yarn is Cascade 220 in Savona Rose.
Then I realized that I could dye some yarn for the Downhill Dyeing event. I got out the yarn (60% wool, 20% bamboo & 20% silk) and the Kool-Aid. I used 2 bags of Ice Blue Raspberry Lemonade Kool-Aid Twist and 1 bag of Pink Lemonade Kool-Aid. I used less than recommended amount of Kool-Aid since I didn't want the colours to be too bright.
I got my medal for the Downhill Dyeing yesterday, it's to the left =D
I'm also taking part of the Socks from the toe up KAL this month. I'm doing the free patterns though. We're knitting Mallow-socks and I'm using Lorna's Laces Shepherd sock in Daffodil.
I've also gotten a bit farther on my Festivus sock, I've turned my first heel. Keri that wrote the pattern is also the source of all the knitting-bags I use :D
And I've finished my first Bavarian Cable sock and I'm at the heel-turn on my second! Yay! I'm going to try and finish them this month. But I'll probably finish the KAL first.
This weekend I'm going to Syfestivalen, I need to get some DPNs for the thumbs on my mittens and I'm going to look for a Niddy Noddy and some undyed yarn. And maybe a getting-started-kit for spinning yarn.
