Knitting for and During the Olympics!

I'm allergic to the fleece lining the official Canadian Olympic mittens so I knit myself some I could wear. They are deadly cute. I'm hoping I'll have enough to knit a matching hat. The yarn is Lion's Brand Wool Ease Thick and Quick and the pattern is Wool-Ease Mittens that's linked on Ravelry.
During the Olympics I'll be working on the Reversible Cable and Eyelet Scarf from Luxury Yarn One Skein Wonders which I got for Christmas. I love these one skein books because I so often see a beautiful skein of yarn and buy it but then it's often a challenge to find a pattern to really show it off. I know have 4 one skein books!

Granny Tan gave me 3 balls of this Cashmerino Aran. It's so beautiful and this pattern is really highlighting its beauty. And it matches other accessories I have, a neck gaiter, a hat, fingerless mitts, and 2 headbands so I'm all set to mix and match! The colour of this is so pretty and it's not fuzzy so I'll be able to wear it into the spring!

For those of you on Ravelry, I updated and added a bunch of projects on there.

Let the Games begin!!

No joining of any groups, I'm just knitting like always. Leave it to knitters to start a 'group'!
