We just got back from a lovely trip to California to visit Henry's grandparents. I have many beach photos to sort through and Henry thinks he should just be able to play at the ocean every single day.
Margene stayed home but my knitting needles came along for the trip.
These projects were inspired by the Ravellenic Games, a knitting challenge on ravelry held during the Olympic Games. To participate, you set a goal for yourself and cast on during opening ceremonies and cast off during the closing ceremonies. For the 2010 Games I did colorwork and weaving. This time I planned a barbie dress and a toddler vest. The toddler vest ended up big enough for a small child and then I made a second for a baby.
I was a couple of days late for cast off but that's okay. Isn't it amazing what a person can create with sticks, string and time? I also forget how relaxing knitting is. And then I pick it up and discover the joy all over again. Sometimes it helps to be so
Do you knit? Are you on ravelry? I'm quirkygranolagirl there, too. I'd be curious what knitting you are up to if you decide to share.
