Though I did not originally intend to participate in the knitting ravelympics this year, there was enough chatter on the boards that I eventually succumbed to peer pressure, joined Team 51 (go DC and environs!) and embraced my competitive nature (even if I'm only competing with myself, I do enjoy a challenge!) Maybe I'm too ambitious, but I entered Indigo Ripples in the Synchronized Flirty Skirts event, as well as the Central Park Hoodie in WIPS Wrangling. As of today, CPH is 1 front + hood + buttonbands away from finishing. Indigo Ripples is 10 balls of Elann den-m-it. I do have some time off work, and a road trip that will allow for plenty of mindless stockinette, so I plan to work on it then.
