let the games begin !!!

play games, knit, and eat cake too

the games have begun. i don't know about you, but i simply could not stay up late enough to see the torch lit and then cast on, so i cast on today.

my first, and possibly ONLY project for ravelympics, is going to be this pair of socks. i'm going to knit a pattern called green apple newton socks with some 'muslin' colored kroy sock yarn. it's essentially a gansey type pattern full of wonderful knit and purl stitches.

THE CAKE! let's not forget the cake up above. the cake was delicious. ms. amy made it yesterday in honor of the knitting olympics. it's carrot cake. with a cream cheese icing. and it was DELICIOUS. i went back for 2nds, but instead ended up with more lasagna on my plate. oops. i loved the cake, but it's the savory that always satisfies me most.

Mmm I love the sweets. If you have any leftovers, send'em my way! hehe

And honestly, after the gorgeous cake photo, the first thought in my head for the sock photo was "frosting?" Nope. Just some yummy-looking yarn.

Good luck!
