J - 5

Yes, the Ravelympics are starting in... 5 days! I have the perfect yarn, I've swatched, I even have spare time, but yes, I'm waiting (and excited!) to start the project with my knitting friends Team Montreal Area this coming Friday at 9pm ! I guess this is part of the fun! I can only imagine how the athletes must feel just 5 days from the start of a lifetime experience such as the Olympics.

Here's my swatch and the needles set aside, all patiently waiting to become Monkey socks!

So, in the meantime, I have to put that spare time to good use. I started to knit a gift for my cousin's baby boy. He was born last August and I haven't seen him yet. So far, it is a very fun knit. It's called Striped Outfit for a Stripeknight and is a free download on Ravelry. I think it is super cute and I picked the same color as in the pattern. I think that these 3 colors are the perfect combination for a little baby boy!

Happy Ravelympics everyone!

Wow Maryse! J'adore cette couleur, tes bas vont être magnifiques! ...Mais je t'avoue que si tu es capable de tricoter "deux" bas en 17 jours, je soupçonne que tu vas "caller sick" au boulot! lol!

Superbe projet pour le bébé, trop cute!!
À bientôt tricot-geek!

The yarn you chose for your Monkey socks is fantastic! Love the colour. I'm so excited to start the Ravelympics on Friday, too!

Je ne savais même pas que tu avais un blog! Bon bloganniversaire! J'adore la couleur de tes prochains Monkeys et heureusement que j'ai trouvé ton blog car j'allais commencé mon tricot à 19 heures au lien de 21 heures... ce qui m'aurait certainement disqualifiée pour dopage ;-)
