Aint bad

Two out of three medals aint bad, I think.

Though ravelympics isn't technically over, there's no way J's gloves will get done.

My wrist started hurting late Friday night, so I threw in the towel, but not literally, because that would hurt my wrist. I don't have carpal tunnel, and I'd like it to stay that way.

So I took Saturday off of crafting, and this evening I made my first wet felting. I had checked out Felt by India Flint and Toyko Sugiwaka a few weeks ago from the library, but had been so devoted to knitting that I hadn't tried anything up until now.

The book had instructions for the flower, and for a gadget cozy, the holes for the screen and sensor were my modification. Not bad, I think.

I also made scones.

Scones are this week's bake-along over on the Let's Cook group on ravelry (cookies were last week). One of the members suggested this recipe. I was a little afraid that it wouldn't turn out since I don't own American measuring cups, and several websites had different conversions for cups to grams, but it turned out really good.

Anyone else do ravelympics this year? How did your projects turn out?


  1. Congratulations!! Two out of three is great - better than Lindsey Vonn, anyway (she's a skier). I really like your gloves. I'll post a photo of Garrett's fingerless gloves, which are almost finished. I supposedly was doing the Knitting Olympics, but I petered out after doing eight tiny baptismal stoles. Still haven't started on a charity hat yet, but will as soon as Garrett's project is finished. I can't wait for you to come back and make scones for us!

  2. I'd be happy to make scones for you guys!
