Since pushing myself in the knitting department isn’t really a great thing right now, I decided to celebrate Ravelry’s winter games with something small.
A washcloth, to be exact. I started it during the opening ceremonies of the winter games, and finished it over 3 evenings. I think that should earn me a bronze medal. Or maybe a piece of chocolate.
In the meantime, I’ve also worked about another 10 rows on the big pink tent. I may stab my eyes out with the knitting needles before that ever gets finished. I don’t know what I was thinking starting such a giant project.
In more exciting knitting news, I finally got a photo of the cute hat I got in our Stitch ‘n Bitch swap this year:
It’s the Hinagiku Hat pattern, and it’s made with that fancy German Woolmeise yarn. It’s very nice and squishy. It just happens to be a perfect color to go with my sky scarf, so I can even look like I’m somewhat coordinated. I wore the hat the other day with the blue/gray/white scarf and my gray Estonian mittens – it was a perfect combo. Thanks, Anna!
