Ravellenics Day 9 Progress

As of this morning, I have 21 hexipuffs complete. I am a little over the halfway mark. I am going to meet with some lovely knitting friends today, so I am hoping to complete at least 5 more today. I really need about 9 to get back on track with my plan. We shall see what happens.

As for the cowl, I am in the midst of casting on again. This time, with a different pattern. I am making Scrumptious. More pics when I really have something to show.

Ravellenics Day 1 Progress

My goal is 3 a day. However, I did 1 and a half. I fell asleep making the last one. I had a high energy dance class last night, so that's what made me so tired. I have more time this weekend to catch up.

Hexipuff Madness 2014 - Week 4

This week, I completed 9 hexipuffs. Altogether, I have made 34 this year. This brings my grand total to 137. That's 13.1% of my goal.

I calculated that if I knit 3 a day, I would be complete by December 5th. Then maybe I could stitch it together during the holidays. I know, I said the same thing during the summer. But, this time it seems more realistic.

I will continue to take a picture of just the new ones, until my 2014 goal of 384 has been reached. Then I will add last year's hexipuffs.

So, in an effort to make more hexipuffs, I have entered the Modular Relay event in the Ravellenics games on Ravelry. I have decided to complete a whole skein's worth of hexipuffs, which are roughly about 40. In 17 days! Eeeeeek!

I've decided to use the Blue Violet colorway of Knit Picks Stroll Tonal Fingering weight yarn. This color forms the center "flower" in my pattern design. I figured it was about time I let the design dictate what color comes next.

Gearing up for Ravellenics

In just a few days, the 2014 Olympic Opening Ceremonies will be upon us.  So, it is only right that I prepare for the Ravellenics Games.  (It used to be called Ravelympics, but the Olympic Committee got a little upset, so the name was changed, and we still knit like maniacs)

So during these games, we set out to knit a certain item that we predesignate as an entry into the games.  The main objective is to complete the item between the time of the start of Opening Ceremonies on the 7th and the Closing Ceremonies on the 23rd.  This year, the moderator of the Knatural Purls group on Ravelry asked if I would like to be team captain.  Of course I said yes!

In doing my duty, I had to set up the team, as well as encourage (enable) my fellow Knatural Purls comrades to compete in events.  It didn't take much, because we are all cowl crazy.

My second order of business was to create a Team badge that would give us a visible presence.  So, without further adieu, here is our Curly Girl.  She doesn't have a name yet.  I will let the Team vote on that. She is wearing our favorite color Very Berry (Malabrigo).  She has curly hair because we all do, and she is very glam while she is rockin' her cowl that we all are addicted to making.  She truly represents our group, and we love her in all her cuteness. 

If you would like to join Knatural Purls, do not hesitate to do so on Ravelry.  Tag your projects with the tag TeamKnaturalPurls2014 .  We want to get as many winning team badges as we can.
