Here’s the second choice for our Winter Halfpipe Hat KAL. Remember this is in honor of the Winter Olympics. We will be casting on February 4th and finishing by February 20th. I styled this after the Ravellenics event. You can join us by commenting here, buying a kit and/or commenting in our Rav group here. The kit includes the yarn, a pompom and the digital pattern. Find the kit here.
I love this r=Rhinebeck hat designed by Wooly Wormhead. It is so cute and striking. It is a slouchy hat that is knit with short rows. It takes 2 different yarns. This kit includes a full skein of the variegated yarn and a half skein of the semi-solid. Each set of yarn is one of a kind. Here are some choices
That’s what I’m going to call it anyway. In years past, there were Ravelry groups and the event was called Ravellenics. But since it’s basically crickets on Ravelry, I’m picking my name.
So here’s what this event is about…. It is an event for all crafters. The goal is to craft each and every day of the current Olympic games. Each crafter can set their own goal as well. Some people in the past have set the goal to start and finish a particular project during those 2 weeks, such as a pair of socks or a hat or maybe an embroidery.
My goal is to make good progress towards my new Fibershed, handspun top. I will be casting on Friday and working towards completion. I’m not sure I can get enough knitting time to actually finish but I would like to be about half way done by that time. My ultimate goal is to have that top ready by the Fall Fiber shows: Shenandoah and Rhinebeck.
I am forming a team for this year’s games. Are you ready? The opening ceremonies are Friday. And the closing ceremonies are August 8th. That’s 2 weeks. To be a part of my team follow my Facebook group here. Introduce yourself and let us know what your goal is. Each day I will start a thread about that day so that you can post your updates and some photos. It is really fun to be a part of a community all working at the same time. What will you be making?
