Victory Is Mine

Here is my simple socks I did for the Ravelympics. I am so happy they are done. A little big in the instep, but thats okay. I am very happy with the striping of the yarn. I got the little boogers done in about 5 days. Next time I do these I will just cast on 52 stitches and that way they will fit perfectly.

And for my effort I received my recognition.......a badge of completion. Yay!

Projects for Ravelympics

Above is Mara that I plan on finishing during the Winter Olympics. I'm basically at the end just have to finish one more skein and move on to the ruffle part. At least I will get some use out of it before the weather officially breaks. (Seeing that the damn groundhog predicted 6 more weeks of winter.)

Here are the socks I want to challenge myself with. The challenge is to do 2 socks on one circ. I have never done it before. I just finished my 1st pair of socks doing the magic loop. Above is "Mermaid's Lagoon" from These will be for my mom. I have 1 skein of Cherry Tree Hill superwash hand dyed in a lovely purple. Purple is my mom's fav color. Must please mom. Below is just a simple sock I will be doing out of Maxime Print by Filatura Di Crosa. Gotta love self patterning yarn.
All in all I should be a very happy Olympian when I cross the finishline. At least I hope so.
