Ravelympics: The Knitting Begins

So, the sign-ups are done, the team is formed. We have a great, great team, you can find them here if you are on Ravelry.

My first and biggest project is a top-down raglan cardigan -- I'm kinda following this pattern from Cosmic Pluto -- but I'm sure I'll make adjustments as I go along.

For training, I swatched the yarn (doubling it)


Now I have gathered the yarn and the pattern (still need to get the Knitpicks options put together), and I'm ready to cast on today!


But before I do, I need to watch this again for the proper inspiration:

You go, girl! I'm impressed.

Nice to see you last night, too!

Hi Renee - I'm a knitting minister as well. I look forward to getting to know you through your blog (and feel free to check out mine as well...)

However, since I'm not involved in the Knitting Olympics (yes, I read Mason-Dixon and the Yarn Harlot AND I'm on Ravelry--but I'm also working...), I have decided not to bug you with questions until that event is over. I will want to know about the afghan you put together, but it can wait (the baby won't be born until February).

Knit on!
