Did you see the Olympic coverage last night? I watched a bit of it at my son's house. The Opening Ceremonies are tonight and I can't wait to see them. And like lots of others who have hand work projects for Olympics watching, I have selected this scarf as my Olympic endeavor. I know that you are suppose to wait till the Opening Ceremonies to start, but hey, the competition in Sochi started already and I couldn't wait to jump into this scarf.
This is Ma Belle Amie... My Beautiful Friend. A free pattern on Ravelry that you can see here. I love all those stripes.
I'm using Paton DK Superwash Wool. I bought these skeins on sale at Joanns.
My color progression is gray/apple green, apple green/turquoise, turquoise/orange, orange/purple, purple/yellow, yellow/gray. When I get finished I will kitchener the ends together and it should make a very long infinity scarf that I can wrap a couple of times around my neck. I am making it narrower than the pattern called for. I only cast on about 50 stitches and I think it will be plenty wide.
As for last week's work, I did get my latest Urban Lace cowl knitted but not blocked. This is the Aurora colorway of the Lion Brand Amazing yarn.
So I will have my butt parked in my happy chair watching the athletic performances of those in much better physical shape than me for the next 2 weeks. Its a hard job but someone has to do it - LOL!
