I have yet to knit something faded, but all the cool knitters are doing it. I want to be cool! So I made the decision that my winter sweater knitting project would be the Comfort Fade Cardi by Andrea Mowry. I began my search for the perfect fade kit. After much scrolling, I saw a kit from Nice and Knit that was calling my name and ordered it.
Great! Now that I have your attention, let's talk about knitting projects.
Typically, I knit monogamously. I am a ‘one-project-at-a-time’ kind of girl, you know? Maybe it was boredom with a stockinette project or maybe it was the holiday blues, but recently I worked on two projects at once! I know what you are thinking, “Kelsey, that’s not like you. Are you sure you can handle doing two at the same time?” I know, I know, who can handle all those balls of yarn?
This past weekend, I scrolled through Instagram and saw that Fibre Space, one of my favorite yarn shops, posted that they are hosting a Ravellenic Games team. Challenge accepted!
The goal of the Ravellenic Games is to challenge yourself to start, and hopefully finish, a knitting project during the Olympics. It has a fun twist, too. You can enter different “events” such as Cowl Curling, Aerial Unwind (a category for frogging…yes please!), Hat Halfpipe, and my personal favorite, Sweater Skeleton.
