Ravellenic Games: Part II

I knit two cat beds for the Tompkins County SPCA. The sides are floppy, but the beds themselves are cushy, so I hope some of the cats will enjoy them. For this, I received three medals - one in Free Dance (an open event), one in Charity Curling, and one in Stash Skeleton (for using yarn that has been in my stash for awhile).

Ravellenic Games: Alpine Abode Enhancement

Every two years during the Olympic Games, Ravelry hosts a knitting challenge called the Ravellenics. I wanted to get as many badges as possible during the games. One of my "medals" came from the Alpine Abode Enhancement category (including washcloths, pillows, blankets, and ornaments or any other home decor) for which I made a hearts garland using the Heart Bunting pattern from Knit 1, Purl 1. Finished in time for Valentine's Day, I made 11 hearts in total, for the 10+ years George and I have been together.

Stay tuned for updates about my other Ravellenic Games accomplishments!
