yup, that i am. tomorrow the 2010 winter olympics kick off in van city, and as soon as that giant torch is lit there will be thousands (and thousands!) of knitters, crocheters, spinners, dyers, and fiber artists of all kinds busting out of the starting gate. it’ll be a mad dash for the finish line, yarn & needles flying everywhere. i cannot wait. myself, i’ve entered 3 separate projects in the ‘competition’:
chevalier mittens – qualifies for the ‘mitten moguls’, ‘cable cross country’, and ‘stash compulsory dance’ events (stash being that of which i’ve had in my possession for well over 1 year). it will be my fourth time knitting this pattern – love it, no end in sight!
knotty but nice hat – qualifies for the ‘hat halfpipe’, and ‘cable cross country’ events
saroyan scarf – qualifies for the ‘scarf super-g’, ‘lace luge’, and ‘stash compulsory’ events
and! how totally awesome is it that each of these fantastical projects will be gifted once they’re done? what lucky people they are – and they don’t even know it yet, they’re all surprise knits. okay maybe not so much of a surprise now that it’s been blogged about, but i haven’t named any names yet, now have i? we’ll all just have to wait and see…
happy knitting everyone!
and good luck to all my fellow ravthletes!
especially TEAM CANADA 2010!
