In the Meantime and In Between Time

The Tour has wrapped up for another year. All the knitters did their best to finish their own challenges and at least two knitters were successful in their endeavors.

There is no rest for the wicked, however, and your intrepid hosts here at BaadMedicine will be undertaking another knitting challenge in 10 days time. Why, you may ask? To be honest, I'm not sure. These periods of intense knitting have certainly increased my output for this summer. I have pushed myself to finish projects for unrealistic deadlines and have impressed myself with the results. And so, we embark upon the Ravelympics where I will take part in the Designer's Discus and the Sockput in an effort to make up a sock pattern that the Dude will not only tolerate but possible wear. By choice. I have also entered the Baby Dressage event because one pair of Man sized socks is apparently not enough for me. I will also attempt to whip up an Umbilical Cord Hat for the little person on the end of this Umbical Cord. It's a little art imitating life knitting.

And so, while I rest up for my events and try to think of a way to deal with knitting in the intense smog of Beijing, I am staying loose. The pair of STR socks is half done so I'll knit away on those and envision Olympic glory. I may even whip up a bag while I wait for the Olympic flame to arrive.

Are you a Ravlete? What are you knitting for the Ravelympics?

I'm doing the Hat Dash and plan to make two Dean Street Hat and 1 One Day Beret. All out of Malabrigo Worsted. I had to stop myself from adding more events and projects as I know I won't be able to do more than these.

I'm doing another Cozy. I have about 10 inches left on the current one that I need to do. Must free up the needles!

You two are knitting machines. I am not committing to anything lest I embarrass myself by not finishing anything again.
