I've participated in the Ravellenics three times now, twice during Winter Olympics (oh, wow, can I use that word?!? ha ha!), and once during the Summer Olympics. I think it's about time I had a medal to show for my work!
So I made one!
The idea came from Astri over at AppleBlossomDreams. She made my Fjord Beanie the day after I published the pattern, and I told her she should get a medal. She said that gave her an idea, and her comment on my comment gave me an idea. The race was on!
Who finished first???
I had planned to finish Welcome to the Jungle as a WIP (Work in Progress) Dance project, but alas, the Ravellenics doesn't have categories for sewing or quilting. I also was pretty busy at work during this year's Olympics, plus, I do still have to finish that quilt by the end of March if I hope to submit it in time to hopefully be juried into the Denver National Quilt Festival.
As a result, this year's Ravellenic projects were not huge, and none were horribly time-consuming, most made aboard the train during my daily commutes. I'm pleased with what I was able to crank out:
1 beaded snowflake
9 snowflake rocks
1 natural-dyed hank of yarn
and a gold medal!
