Coming Up for Air

February 15, 2010

I didn’t realize it had been such a long time since I last visited to all of you in blogland. I have been amazingly busy. Since we last talked I have added two more pieces to the Aragorn set – a hat and fingerless gloves

The hat pattern is already published on Ravelry and the gloves should be ready for publication later this week. The gloves will be a fun pattern because there are two versions included in the pattern.

This weekend started the Ravelympics. My goals for the 2010 Ravelympics are to finish one languishing WIP (Lorien Hat)and to complete three designs – one of which must be published as a pattern on Ravelry by the extinguishing of the Olympic torch. So I’m in a knitting and designing frenzy.

I have made good progress though. The Lorien hat WIP is close to the half-way mark. The pattern challenge is currently with test knitters and the tech editor so it is well on its way to reality. I can’t tell you a lot about it because the testers are doing it as a mystery KAL. It has been fun teasing them about it. And one of my design challenges, Bright Copper Kettles which had been patiently waiting in my design idea notebook since the last Ravelympics, is about one-quarter through. I did have a couple of temporary set-backs with it (lost the needles and had to frog a mistake or two) but I am currently reknitting the frogged section so I am back in the race – a little behind the front runners but not out of the race entirely.

That is all the blogging time I have for now but stay tuned for the next Ravelympics adventures.
