The Ravellenic Games!

The Ravellenic Games are going strong on RavelryTeam Knit Equals Joy is going strong at the Ravellenic Games.

Our team is small but mighty with 23 members currently showing up on the team rosters.  Members can join our team at any time throughout the games.

The mass cast-on occurred last Friday in tandem with the Opening Ceremonies of the Rio Olympics. Since then, 12 projects have been completed by our team.  Many more are in the works.

I’m working on this pair of socks for the Ravellenic Games:

Sock 8-8 (1024x887)

These are my Smooth Operator Socks, pattern by Susan B. Anderson.  The yarn is awesome; it’s Knitted Wit Victory Sock in the PDX Carpet colorway.  I cannot wait to finish these!!!  I don’t currently have any handknit socks to wear. I’m also taking part in the Smooth Operator Sock KAL in Susan’s Ravelry Group, Itty Bitty Knits. So much fun!

We’re all knitting away through the end of the Games. We’ve got a great collection of prizes; winners will be chosen randomly at the end from all the finished projects by our teammates. I’ve put together a lovely prize package and will choose a winner randomly from among those team members who make one of my patterns. All the details are in this thread in my Ravelry group (I haven’t posted a picture of the prize package yet, though).

I’ll leave you with some of the fun graphics that were made for our team:

  1. Oooooh, I love your sock yarn! I just might have to go in search of some of that for myself. 🙂
