Ravelympics Update - Day 4

Up early and even managed to watch a little of the Men's 100m Synchronised Diving, while kitting of course. I started the Right Front, but only the garter stitch band at the bottom (5 rows)... more to follow

Ravelympics Update - Day 3

Wow, I'm storming ahead, with first sleeve complete, the second cast on and completed!!

So far... Back complete, 2 sleeves complete
to do.... Right front, left front and make up

So if I make this in time (& I'm not going to slow down and coast) then I have thoughts for the bonus item - Stacking cats by Mochi.... something for me for a change, well when I say me, what I really mean is starting off as mine, but will probably get hijacked by the kiddiewinks.

Ravelympics Update - Day 2

Day 2 of the Ravelympics Challenge and althoiugh is Saturday and usually a rubbish day for knitting, I did manage to complete the back and cast one the first sleeve.

Motoring along and if I keep this up then I'll be able to knit the bonus item(s)

Ravelympics... the cast on

I've decided that I really need to start and complete a project for Baby Sweeney, so rather than setting the Olympic challenge to complete the blanket, I want to start and finish a little jacket

Paton's have a cute little jacket called Glee, which has a simple cable design and false pockets.

Technically I should be casting on during the Opening Ceremony, but as it 1pm British time, was at work so I cast on the back and knitted the first 13cm once the children were in bed.

A good start and on track to finish on time or maybe even earlier
