Tying up loose ends – Ravellenic Games 2012

September 14th, 2012 § 0 comments

The Ravellenic Games have come and gone, and although I’ve posted pictures and written about the trials and tribulations of knitting under pressure, I have neglected to mention something rather fun.  That is, I won a prize for the baby hat I knit!  I did post this happy update on my Facebook fan page but I do realize that not everyone in the knitting community is on that site (or Twitter).  So I failed to blog about winning a prize for getting to the finish line on time.  Ah well.  I’m writing now, and that’s all that matters, right?

The prize?  A gorgeous skein of Tanis Fibre Arts fingering weight yarn (or sock yarn for you non-knitter types) in a variegated teal colourway.  Did I happen to mention that teal is one of my favourite colours ever?!  420 yards of squooshy goodness.  I can’t believe I lucked out!

And no Ravellenic (or, cough, Ravelympic) experience would be complete without the Ravelry Badge of Glory which depicts the Ravelry mascot, Bob the Boston Terrier.  (As an off-topic aside, Bob has his own cult status on Ravelry and has been featured in a few silly films like this one).  Here’s what this year’s badge looks like:

And for continuity purposes (aka POID), here’s the two badges I’ve earned for the last two events!  Bring on the Winter 2014 games in Sochi Russia!
