Olympics of Summer

Been MIA from the blog, but not from knitting. Gearing up for Ravelry's version of the knitting olympics. I'm officially signed up for the Bag-N-Tote Backstroke for Team Virginia Stars.......Revving up to start & finish (in 17 days) the Everything Bag by Suss Cousins.

In the meantime, found a great book at Tuesday Morning called Handknit Style by Linden Ward and Beryl Hiatt. Several sweaters jumped onto the gotta-make-it list but this one got my immediate attention.
It's called Summer In The City. Using Cotton Patiné in a creme color that I recently purchased from Little Knits. My plan is to have it finished before the Ravelympics so I'm knitting like a fiend. The yarn is kinda "splitty" (if that's a real word) by I love it's soft texture. Pictures coming soon!

Next week is vacation. Roadtrip to visit daughter. Planning to hit every yarn shop between here and Roanoke.......... Knit on my friends, knit on.
