About Me

I'm a married knitter, crocheter, and newbie spinner living in the Maryland suburbs with my photographer- computer geek hubby, 3 cats, and 3 dogs. And yarn. A LOT of yarn. Just ask my hubby.


Yup, I’m a Twit!

Knitting Olympics Pattern

So, I finally decided just to scan in the picture from my copy of KnitSimple, rather than looking for one online.

This is the sweater I am making for the Knitting Olympics, in the maroon/pink yarn pictured here.

I have also decided that, as my self-challenge warm-up to the Olympics, I am going to have Kris’s socks finished before Friday. I got a fair amount done on them while watching the AFC Championship game and the Super Bowl (like more than I have done in the *mumble* months since I started them). It seemed that the more stressed I got, the faster I worked on them. I am about halfway done, and therefore to the heel portion (hee – I typed “hell” at first. Foreshadowing?), and I am fairly sure that I can get them done over the next few days. The ribbing on the cuff will slow me down some, but I can do it.

Will update later with swatches, once I finish the socks.

ETA: Swatch! (And no, the socks aren’t done yet. I wanted to play for a bit)

    It’s actually 3! Most of it is the Paton’s Lacette. The 2 darker stripes with the metallic bits are the Paton’s Silverlash, and the stripe at the top is the Paton’s Glittalic.

    And I must say, for a very-highly-synthetic bunch of yarn, it’s quite soft. =)
