Ravellenic Games

What a busy summer! And hence why so quiet on the blogging front…

The summer games happened in London, and also here on the home front, in the form of the Ravellenic Games, in which I undertook to make 6 items within the time between the beginning of the Opening Ceremony, and the final credits of the Closing Ceremony. I did it, with time to spare (but rather pleased I didn’t take on anything else as the cupboards were getting bare and the Boy was objecting to another night of baked beans for dinner…)

Herewith the products of my labours…

Pup Tent – in Woolyknit crafts beautiful British Naturals mid-grey wool

Twisted Rib neckwarmer – in a not-very-fabulous-but-very-stashbusting Wendy 4ply

Crochet openwork gauntlets – in a lovely British alpaca yarn purchased at Cotswold Woollens in the Spring

Thick & Quick ribbed cowl in a handspun variegated yarn received in a swap years ago

Waffle Stitch Fingerless gloves in Woolyknit’s British Aran

Gaptastic Cowl in the other skein of swapped handspun
