Folsom Ravelympic Party

Oh we had such a good time on February 12th 2010 for the start of the Ravelympics held at Lorna Miser’s club house. We each brought food for a pot luck and there certainly was a great variety of dips, salads, main courses and dessert.

Official start time was 6pm and while I spent a while casting on my 216 stitches, several others in the group took full advantage of  that time available to eat instead! My idea was to get my project started and do at least one row and then my reward was some food!

Finally at 7.30pm well fed and watered we all sat down and commenced our individual challenges. Alan made a little video and included everyone who had entered the competition so that will be ready to air shortly. A cross section of projects, many WIP or UFO may end up becoming finished items, also a cross section of sweaters and shawls were included.

Alan and I had another place to call on before heading home so we left the club house at about 10.30pm. I was very happy to have managed to knit 4 rows of the graph to set up the design. I did hear later that there were knitters reluctant to go home and the party finally closed up for the night around 12.30am

Thanks Lorna for making the club house available and I know we all had a great evening.
