Well, I have decided to try and participate in the Ravelompics 2012.
The pattern I am going to do is the Basic Socks in the book Getting Started Knitting Socks.
Team Tribute is the group I am going to be knitting for. Since I love the Hunger Games, I thought it would be great.
Because I am doing these socks as a present and using some old yarn, this projects can be counted under:
- Synchronized Stash Busting
- Holiday Hurdles
- Sock Put
According to the rules, I can't cast on for the project until the Opening Ceremonies of the Games. However, I can knit a gauge to make sure the yarn and needles are the right size.
I am using the Bernat Cot'n Corn in Avocado and the current gauge is
4 knit and 41/2 purl stitches to the inch on size 7 needles. There are approximately 6 knit and 7 purl rows to the inch as well.
