I haven’t been updating you on my Ravellenic Games Project, but I’ve been chugging away on it since last Friday. and I’m sure you’re sitting on the edge of your seat, waiting with bated breath for an update.
Unfortunately, I’ve been in a magical land of no internet connection. Or at least with crummy enough internet to count as no internet.
We took a road trip out to Yellowstone! It’s my favorite place on earth, and if you haven’t gone yet, Go! It’s absolutely amazing, every time I’ve been.
I’ll tell you more about that later, but I wanted to give you a quick update on the sweater, and I briefly have internet (we’re still on the road- we just stopped at a coffee shop for a little bit of WiFi and caffeine).
The my Campside Cardi is coming along great! It’s perfect car ride knitting- just interesting enough to keep cabin fever from kicking in, but not so interesting that I have to watch my fingers.I’m well into the eyelets in the bottom half of the sweater body, and they’re surprisingly fun. The pattern changes subtly every few inches, which keeps me on my toes. But, it’s not so fiddly that if I zone out for a few miles I ruin the sweater. Perfect!And, it’s fun playing with my new camera. Artistic knitting shots ahoy!
I’d better head out- we need to get back on the road if we hope to make it back to Seattle by dark!
How’s your Ravellenic knitting going?
This is so pretty! What yarn are you using? I got a late start on my Ravellenics project, and after multiple swatches and a trip to the frogging pond, I think I finally have it started…but just barely!
Thanks! It’s turning out really well, I think. (I did have to rip it back after I tried to be smarter than the pattern… 3 hours of work down the drain!) I’m using Knit Picks’ Wool of the Andes Sport. It’s one of my favorite workhorse yarns.
I love Yellowstone too, though I’ve only been there once and it was years and years ago. I wish I was participating in the Ravellenic Games this year; this is the first time since 2010 that I’m not participating in some way, though I just finished a project – a baby blanket in 5 days – that would qualify. Your sweater looks great!
