Welcome to what may be the first of many Ravellenic Updates. On Friday night I settled down with my mom and my husband to watch the Opening Ceremonies of the Olympics. I love the Olympics! I just can't help myself, Hubby and I watch as much as possible. (Which is something I never did before we met so I guess I have him to thank. Thank you!)
The Marrowstone Shawl.....right now is a no-go. I cast on and frogged no less than three times, it's one of those projects that takes a bit of concentration. And half of my concentration was spent on the Opening Ceremonies.....and I wasn't overly impressed. But seriously, Beijing's Opening Ceremonies really took the cake so it's hard to be impressed after that. So tonight, now that I am home from a lovely week away, I will attempt cast-on a fourth time. If it tanks, it tanks. Right now things are crazy in my life and the next week is going to be a sweet little taste of chaos, so I don't have room for knitting projects to drive me further insane. I still have the baby hats and can still "medal."
Oh, the baby hats! Three so far, and I've started a fourth. I'm not sure how many I'm going to do, it all depends on "Marrowstone success." The fourth one is a pale pink preemie hat. Because of all the babies that need love and warmth, the preemies need it the most.
