For those of you who have no idea what I'm talking about the Ravellenic Games are described as this:
Challenge yourself by starting and finishing one or more projects during the 2014 Winter Olympics.
Some backstory... here's my entry from 2010. I rocked it. I knit an entire traditional stranded sweater in the time between the opening and closing ceremonies. I knit for gold:
Here's 2012. I knit a shawl. It was less epic than a sweater but still quite Olympic worthy. Especially since the picot bindoff and the beads made the whole thing take ALOT longer than I had anticipated:
here's 2008 (I failed b/c I was newly pregnant with my daughter and very, VERY sick), and here's 2006 (I failed because I was cocky and partied too much. But then I later redeemed myself.)
So... 2014? I'm... well... I started thinking that I would knit Matt a sweater. I pinned and I googled and I narrowed it down to these:
|Cobblestone, Guston, Devon|
|Slightly more kids than I was responsible for in 2006. And a younger kid than I have ever had during an Olympics.|
So... I don't know what to do. I've stashdived and I've pondered and I'm just lost. I think I've narrowed things down to 2 possibilities that will be insane but just barely possible.
Option 1: The Tomtems. Ok the tomtem is a kid's sweater/jacket by Elizabeth Zimmerman. The tomtem is a type of Swedish Elf and kids are supposed to resemble them when wearing this jacket. I knit one for the little guy over the fall:
|seriously these two.|
Option 2: Matt Socks. I knit Matt a pair of socks out of this:
|Destination Yarn in The Road Ahead.|
Ok. So yeah. What do you guys think? I have less than 48 hours to decide. GULP.
