Oh My Goodness!

Look what just popped up on Knitty!!!

Whaaaaaa! And I have already committed to knitting Cables & Lace for the Ravelympics! (Ravelry link)

Alas, I have been working very hard on rewriting Cables & Lace as a top-down raglan pattern. Even though I can't cast on until 8:00 tomorrow night, I've been "training" very hard this week (i.e. swatching, drafting the pattern, calculating gauge, etc.).


I'm just about ready for the Olympic Opening Ceremonies tomorrow. A little more pattern refining, a little more measuring and I'm all set to compete.

Oh, and my new reward for finishing Cables & Lace before the Closing Ceremonies: Casting on Skew!

Talk about going for the Gold!

I saw the Skew and thought that this was a very cool mathematical approach to a sock. Wonder how comfortable they would be?
