Finally out of school and Ravelympics...

Sorry for the lack of blogging... between the last few days of this term, and the Ravelympics I've been just a bit too busy...
School is finally over, but I have the enrolment for next term, exactly next week... and I'll be back to school in about three weeks... so there goes summer holiday... :-P

I'm guessing you are wondering what are the Ravelympics........ :-p
Well, this is easy to understand for knitters and crocheters... so if you are either one of those, and are in love with Ravelry, don't read this...

"Ravelry is a place for knitters, crocheters, designers, spinners, and dyers to keep track of their yarn, tools and pattern information, and look to others for ideas and inspiration." From Wikipedia.
The place is just awesome, is like crafty facebook or some social networking thing... with lots of yarn, you can have pretty much anything that involves knitting, crocheting and yarn related things easily ordered which is always great... and it's like the pattern central of the web and other realms... and you can see what everyone else is doing and how... it's great to find the different interpretations from all the people that has tried it...

Now the Ravelympics are just amazing!
It's pretty much a spin on the Olympics or an excuse for Ravelers to knit together... We have teams and different events, pretty much like the Olympics... :D
I signed up with about 7 projects... but I'm stuck with the first one... I'm making my first pair of socks, but first I cast on too many stitches, then when I finally got to the third repeat I realized that something was wrong... I had an extra row, and I had to frog (undo) about 12 rows! And since I fixed this, I haven't knitted at all!
So, I'm terribly behind... And the Ravelympics end soon... well, the same day that the olympics do... and I have lots of things to do... most of them are tiny, but the socks are my main project and I'm soooo stuck...
Have a look,
