3TT: Throwback

For the Olympics in 2006, I knit Williamsro.

2006-Williamsro-1

That one earned a gold medal, which is still hanging on my fridge! Hm, I haven't worn this sweater in a while...

In 2010, there was a pile o' finishing to do.

2010-Finishing

I finished a couple of them then, too! They've all been finished now, in one way or another* (though perhaps not until 2017 -- Oblique!), except for the one on topWill it ever??

{I don't remember why, but the 2014 games were skipped altogether.}

This year, I am gearing up to knit during PyeongChang 2018!

Team Rules Schmules... it works whether you're in it to win it, or just in it for the camaraderie & fun! Feel free to join in!! Official cast on is tomorrow morning at 5 a.m. CST.

I think I'm in it to win it this year (so some of the rules apply), but we'll see... traveling for 5 or so days with a not very travel-friendly project may change that! But for now my yarn is wound, I played around with the cast on and 14" DPNs last night (and dug out some shorter ones because those long ones aren't needed right away), and need to find my knitting belt.

*Man, that Peace Fleece (bottom) is gorgeous, isn't it? Coup d'Etat was frogged, but I still like that design...

ok, I saw those 14" DPNs and whoa ... 8" is the longest I've used. Even my straights are only 10". I hope you're going to share an action shot!

I am hoping for some action shots too! I am intrigued!

I think maybe trying to knit Coup d'Etat from Peace Fleece was doomed from the get go. ;-)

At 14", those DPNs count as both knitting needles and personal protection devices. Intrigued here and also hoping for an action shot.

I remember Williamsro so clearly! Cheers to Olympic knitting in whatever way works best for all of us!

I get frustrated with long DPN's...those 14s would have me jumping out the window! :-) That's a really nice picture of knitting though!

Kym

I kind of freaked out a little when I saw those 14" dpns. But. If anyone can do it, I know you can!!!
(And do you know that I discovered you and your blog when I was crushing hard on Williamsro and started stalking you to see how it would turn out??!!?) XO

All those Olympic games! I've never competed, but have loved seeing what you've taken on. I'm looking forward to seeing what you've got up your sleeve this time around!
