My first event was the Felted Entrelac Tote from Knit Picks. Entrelac was always a technique I thought must be difficult. I found out, like most knitting techniques, it isn't difficult if you just take it a step at a time.
Since that project went faster than I anticipated I added a second knitting event., The Edgar Scarf from Knitty.com.
Being a complete Fiber-a-holic, I also signed on to the Crochet Olympics and elected to combine my love of crochet with the satisfaction of charity work. I set the goal of making 8 pair of fingerless mitts for CIC (Children In Common). This is a group of women who make warm things for the children in orphanages in the former Soviet Union.
Today, I'm working on another Edgar Scarf this time in a warm color. Up here in Bellingham, WA it is a cold and dreary day and the warm colors seem a cheerful bright spot.
I admire your work for CIC. You've done a great job on your Olympic projects. Congratulations!
I don't think we (the CIC_Knit List) are going to have any trouble hitting the 150 goal for mitts, do you?
