Ravelympics, Day #1

Sharing this week's additional snow (which we'd love to send to Vancouver) and the first night's work on two Ravelympics events, up first we have --

a look through a living room window at the lilac bushes buried in snow. We cannot get to them to release them from their white blanket.

The eight inch snowfall following the 24 inch snowfall was able to be blown with our snow blower.

Really good news February 12, Lincoln's Birthday and the opening ceremony day for the Olympics and the Ravelympics is that Michelle sent out the emails for this summer's Meg Swansen's Knitting Camps. Really good? Oh, yes! We're in for 2.75!

During the Opening Ceremonies last night I worked on two of my Ravelympics events.

This Baby Surprise now has its ends woven. It's ready for shoulder seaming, collar, buttons! Its event is WIPsdancing for team SHPknitters.

The swatch for Beth's afghan grows. A reminder: It is Vanna's Choice in oatmeal, Lion Brand pattern Newbury Crossing. Event: slalomghan. No team on this one.

The event flyingcamelspin for team SHPknitters isn't up yet! Stay tuned for this one!

Wait till you see what Russ brought me for Valentine's Day!

Christmas Card pictures, but I am sure you are getting tired of snow.

Such progress on ufos. Do like the way the bsj has come out. Beth should be pleased with her afghan.
