Olympic Knitting

Tap tap. I'm still here! Time to blow the dust off this blog.

Alright, I entered the Ravelympics/Knitting Olympics 2010. I'm not doing anything particularly hard this time, but it will be an accomplishment to finish it all before the closing ceremonies.

First up, the Shroom hat knit with Spud and Chloe Outer. Yarn feels like butter and the hat is a huge mushroom cap on my head. I love it. Using most of the yarn, I knit a 4 inch rib brim, then knit 6 repeats of the puff rib before decreasing. In the end, I had ~25 inches of yarn left. It always feels great not to have much leftover.

Here's my Ravelympics 2010 Hat Halfpipe Medal!
