Stay tuned for updates about my other Ravellenic Games accomplishments!
Look at all these wonderful goodies I received from Kathy and her two pugs, Biscuit and Furrzy! The pug group on Ravelry swaps a few times a year, and it’s always so much fun. I give kudos to my swappers because they are usually not vegan, but always do such a wonderful job finding vegan treats and yarn to include in my packages. Of course, Walter got some fun stuff too – a toy and treats that he’s been enjoying quite a bit today!
In February, I participated in my first Ravelympics. During the Olympics, knitters and crocheters pick challenging projects to complete while watching (or not) the athletes as inspiration. A number of categories include cables, sweaters, designing, toys, and even a category for finishing works-in-progress.
Because I wasn’t quite sure what it was all about, I only committed to one project – a cabled scarf – for the “Go Pug Yourself” team, a Ravelry group of knitters/crocheters owned by pugs. I finished the scarf (my first project with cables) and received the coveted badges of completion.
This scarf is from One Skein: 30 Quick Projects to Knit or Crochet and uses Blue Sky Alpaca Organic Cotton.
I am participating in January’s tropical themed stitch marker swap on Ravelry (group: Mark the Spot). I received a great package from my swap partner with a fun summer bag pattern, a smoothie recipe, jelly beans, and great flip flop stitch markers. With all the snow in Ithaca, the beach-theme was a fun diversion!
