Knitting Olympics

So, it's been a while since I've posted to this blog. It's painfully clear since my last post was titled Still Pregnant and my little guy is now 2 years old... Anyway, even though I haven't been blogging, I have been knitting a lot as can be seen on my Ravelry page.

I am super excited to participate in the Knitting Olympics this year. Four years ago, I was a brand new knitter and wasn't up to the challenge, but this year I am totally IN!

I've really enjoyed making my kiddo special vests and sweaters, so I decided my Olympic project should be the Peter Rabbit Sweater by Erica Wilson -- just in time for Easter. The pattern is really just a chart for duplicate stitching, so I'm going to use the Child's Saddle Shoulder Sweater pattern by Ann Budd for the sweater itself.

For the sweater, I'm using Dream in Color Classy yarn in Crying Dove. I love this yarn so much! Then for the duplicate stitched rabbits, I'll be using a mix of Classy and Madelinetosh DK yarn.

I can't wait for Friday night to cast on!

I LOVE Beatrix Potter stuff for kids - good luck with your Olympic Challenge. I'll meet you at the finish line. I'll be the one wearing the Selbu Modern hat. Knit on!
