Let the Knitting Olympics Begin!

So, it's that time again - Olympics time! I have always enjoyed watching the Olympics but with invent of the Yarn Harlot's Knitting Olympics followed by the Ravelympics on Ravelry, it brings Olympic watching to a whole new level for me. Because I am trying to frantically trying to complete something by the time the Olympic flame goes out, of course. :)

So this year I decided to join up a team for the Ravelympics. I choose Team Blue Moon. Here is our little avatar:
I figure I have a whole lot of their Socks That Rock yarn and I knew I had a very specific plan for one of those skeins, so why the hell not!? What skein, you ask? Well, it's Downpour:
I bought this one a long long time ago (it's been at least two years this one has been marinating in the stash). At first I thought I wanted to knit some Rotating Rib socks (after seeing Yarn Harlot's pair out of this colorway awhile back) but then I started thinking about a Baby Surprise Jacket for the baby cooking in my sister's uterus and I saw some very pretty ones made out of Downpour on Ravelry, and I knew it was meant to be.

So there you have it. My Ravelympics plan: A Baby Surprise Jacket out of Socks That Rock. I think it is going to be just fantastic.


  1. Great plan, great project, beautiful colors! Good luck!

  2. That's going to be gorgeous!! Go Team Blue Moon!

  3. What fabulous yarn and what a great idea!
