Ravelympics

July 25, 2008

I’d like to sign up for the Ravelympics, but the whole thing is just overwhelming. I’m not interested in the social aspect of Ravelry and I think the message boards are chaotic and confusing. Plus I really have no desire to join another Flickr group or really participate in any of the contests or activities that go with it. I’m thinking of just setting a modest goal for myself in which to knit a blue sweater in August. I haven’t decided which one, but I’ll keep you posted.

Also, I’m happy to report that I’ve spun up the fiber for my HHHH partner (it took much longer than I anticipated) and I’m halfway through plying it. It was a real pain to spin because I wanted it to be perfect and I got caught up in spinning “by the rules” instead of doing what worked for me. It looks pretty good so far, but I won’t really know until I’m done. I wish I had photos for you, but I’m only on day five of my vacation photos so it’ll still be a while until we get back to yarn.

Back to spinning now though…

    Are you involved in any local knitting groups outside of Ravelry, though?
