let the games begin

the Olympics that is......

and the knitting olympics as well :-D

This is my challenge. The Every Way Wrap from Interweave Knits Fall 2009 issue. I frogged my endless cable poncho after I discovered there wouldn't be enough yarn.... well honestly, I frogged it last night. My first intention was to knit the wrap with a merino cashmere blend of recycled wool but there wasn't enough of that either. So I'm using the yarn from the endless poncho and pulling out the little country additions (barby things) as I go.

I knit the ribbing tonight during the opening... did the first row of the chart and am now stuck on the cable row.. which way to read the chart... so I want back to the original page and several closer photos and think I have it figured out now.

More sledding today... although I only went down 2 times.. yesterday's tumbles have taken their toll on me. I'm not as young as I once was... Then DH came over with the car so I could run DS2 to gymnastics.. his thought was that he'd bring DD later... until I got there and realized that I had both sets of car keys... so she missed her class... I should have just taken her with me which was my original thought.. but oh well.....

off to knit another row.. i've been spending much of the time during these days spinning..... rambo that is so fluffy I can barely stand it!

Picked up your blog recently through some link or another (sorry, can't recall where!) and enjoy your postings. I am also making the wrap - did you know there was errata? There is a problem with one of the charts- it's backwards. Check interweave website.

Hi Carole,
I'm here to say hi as a new PEAR participant! Your blog is cute. I really want to know how you got those progress graphs on the right sidebar. I want that on my blog! I don't knit, but good luck to you on your ravelympics! I'm going to try a sewing olympics. No snow here in South Texas but it's super cold! (about 45 degrees)
