The Games Have Begun

The 2012 London Olympics have started! And how about those opening ceremonies?! I thought they were excellent. Great Britain was able to emphasize history, tradition, culture and beauty meanwhile keeping the audience completely entertained. I enjoyed it very much. I can’t believe they are only 4 days in (omg 1/4 done with already?!) and I’ve already watched so many high points. Diving, swimming, cycling and gymnastics are what have really held my attention so far. There have been some major problems with the way NBC has been controlling coverage, which I won’t get into here. I do however feel that it’s not fair to take that out on the athletes who have worked so hard to get to where they are. I will continue to watch and support them throughout.

With the Olympics comes the Ravelym….. Ravellenic Games. During the opening ceremonies I cast on for two things, which I planned to share with you today. Surprisingly, I’m only sharing one… Because I’ve already finished the other one! So stay tuned till Friday!

I have my Finally Daybreak, as I’m calling it, on the needles. I’m so unbelievably happy with the color combo so far. With that said, I’m a bit nervous for when I reach the pop of bright green. It’s either going to look fantastic, or awful. I’m using Zauberball in the Bromberry color for my main color and the color way #2079 for my stripes. I can’t seem to find the name of the color and I guess it’s pretty rare. I think I’ve decided if I don’t like the green I’m just going to cut out the green bits since I love what I have so much! Why mess with a good thing, right? Hope you liked my WIP Wednesday post! Check out more!

  1. Beautiful pairing!! I’ve been putting off knitting a Daybreak for a long time. Mostly because I can’t decided on colors. Yours looks gorgeous.
    I’m addicted to Stephen’s patterns.
