Ravellenic Games 2012

Ravelry is awesome. Ravelry is a community for knitters, crocheters, weavers,  there are even a few loom knitters ( like me) and people who just love yarn. The ravellympics is where we all join a team( I joined teamloominescent2012), choose events and knit/crochet/weave/loom our hearts out. Like the real Olympics we will start on July 27 and stop on August 12.

Events I am taking part in:
Hat Dash
Charity Rowing
Holiday Hurdles
Scarf Hockey
Home stuff Hammer throw

I'll be posting what I make here, so come on back.

I am so far behind

I know I have a few weeks of Crochet Corner projects I have to catch up on. Hopefully I will be able to do that this weekend. I have unscheduled the next Crochet Corner post. Once I am caught up I will reschedule it :)

In the mean time if you have made anything with the previous stitches, please share them. Link the project to where ever it may be in the comment box :) NO SPAM!!!!! Its all about trust people :)
To catch up on projects or just have a look, click on the Crochet Corner tab above.


Charity is kicking my butt

In a good way! :) I love helping out. I am on the shy side so face to face interaction ( if i don't know the person well) make me uneasy. So making items and sending them to a worthy cause is perfect for me.
Since I didn't receive many hats ( none actually ) for the University of Vermont School of Medicine and  Norris Cotton Cancer Center I have to make more than I have to send out . Was hoping 10 from each team member . I am waiting for a box of hats from one member....  Praying it comes in this week.

And I signed up to make socks for a local RI homeless shelter called House of Hope. They run the state’s largest men’s night to night shelter. they need hats, scarfs, mitten/gloves and socks. 
Here is the Ravelry threadif you interested in helping out.

ILOVE making these loopy scarfs. with this one I decided to made a pair of matching finger-less mitts. I am not a fan of pink but I love pink and black together. This set is definitely on my favorites list. How about you ? :)

( I accidently brightened up the scarf pics too much. the color of the mitts is the the actual color)
