Let the Games Begin!

I'm taking stock in preparation for the Ravellenic Games- 2 projects recently finished: R2D2 and a gorgeous shawl! I love love love the way the shawl turned out!

That leaves me with 8 WIPS currently: 2 weaving, 1 cross stitch, 2 socks, a vest, a scarf, and my hexipuffs. I decided to stick with WIPS wrestling as my sole event for these games, because we are moving in August, so if I can finish off some things, I can replace them with brand new projects to fill the in-between time when the yarn stash is packed up.

Realistically, they aren't all going to get finished! For one thing, the hexipuffs are a never ending project, so they are just hopeless. For another, I'll be doing a lot of my WIP wrestling in cars during my wedding trip, and weaving doesn't really work in that context. The scarf and cross stitch are also pretty slow going, and still near the beginning. So that leaves me with 3 projects I hope to finish during the Olympics!

For knitting at home before and after the trip, my penguin vest, which I still love despite not having touched in ages. Its a bit bulky to bring with me travelling, but its perfect for knitting on the couch and watching the events.

For mindless purse knitting, perfect for travel and for working on while listening to relatives talk, Ryan's socks. Nearing completion, and perhaps done in time to be a wedding present! Ooh, maybe he'll even wear them to the wedding! That would be fun.

For travel knitting when I can focus on my work, the entrelac socks. One sock is about 1/3 done, the other is only at the toe. It would be great to finish these too and leave me with 3 more empty project bags!
