As I blogged in the wee morning hours, shortly after midnight, it is as easy as it gets now that all my patterns (free downloads and the one for purchase) are available with easy click on Ravelry.  The first pattern for sale is my first Designer Biathlon event; a sock pattern called:  Olympic Heroes and Bleeding Hearts.  It took me four hours last night to sift all my notes together and get this typed.  The pattern includes the stitch pattern both in written and charted forms.  I was so excited to finish and cross this first finish line that I could not get to sleep.  I am TOTALLY enjoying the Ravelympics and the challenges I have given myself.  I still have 10 days to complete my sweater design, which is called:  “Vee Me Up, Scotty”.  It is made out of Blue Moon Fiber Arts STR medium weight yarn in the colorway — My Blue Heaven.  Here is a photo of the sock on top of the sweater:

I was so pround of my compu-achievments, I took a photo of my “storefront”:

Class was busy this morning with several projects that are sooooo close to done!  First is Jean and her intarsia blanket with Yoda…it is absolutely beautiful!  Here is a photo:

Maggie Boga finished her Whipped (which has exceeded 1800 downloads, by the way) and here she is wearing it:

Debbie Elwell is almost done with this month’s pair of mitts for the knit-a-long.  She made them out of Colinette Prism…it only takes one ball.

Oh! So Warm Mitts

Eileen has completed yet another gorgeous baby blanket in pink Schulana Merino-Cotton 90.

Jessica came in for a visit this afternoon and is about a quarter of the way finished with her Whipped.  She is doing it out of Prima, by Debbie Bliss.  Prima is a blend of 80% Bamboo and 20% merino wool.  It feels like a sturdy worsted yarn, is washable and wears beautifully.  It has been very popular with our knitters this winter and I will be ordering more very soon.  Suzy is headed into New York this weekend to search out some Swan’s Island wool for a sweater from The Yarn Girls Guide: Beyond the Basics.  Will share more next week when I see whether she returns with the Indigo or the pink…hmm…

Anyway, be sure to check out the easy downloads on Ravelry.  Remember, the next Yarn-Tasting Event is Sunday, March 7th, from 1-4pm.  Till then, take care and knit on with Olypic Zeal!xox m.e.
