My 2010 Knitting Olympics Challenge


I know it has been awhile, I’ll get caught up on what I’ve done later. Dear Yarn Harlot, ever-inspiring, has organized the annual Knitting Olympics once again, and I am game!

Celtic_L DSC00436 This is “Celtic” by Martin Storey, from Rowan 40. I have always admired it, thought of making it for my youngest daughter, who, as it turns out “hates” cropped sweaters. I kept coming back to this, I just love it. So About 6 months ago I bought exactly the yarn required for in the pattern (Rowan Felted Tweed and Rowan Kid Classic).

I am in the middle of two projects that are currently “on the burner” so to speak (there are countless ones off the stove).

“”Estonian Garden Scarf” by Evelyn Clark in KSH for an old friend. “Tischdecke” by Niebling, a large doily being knit as a shawl in Malabrigo laceweight.

Game on! I am off to swatch!
