August Monthly Mixer (and a New Friend!)

42cad73e-777c-4aff-b2e5-7aeffac81047I know I’m a few days late in posting the Monthy Mixer, and I totally blame this guy. Meet Oliver. He’s 3 1/2 months old and cute as can be. (Don’t you love his heart shaped nose? And his black chin?) All I want to do is play with him, so I totally watched August 1st come and go without a thought to the Mixer. (But really – do you blame me?) I don’t know how I’m going to get my 800 yard Camp Loopy project done this month. I haven’t tried knitting around him, so he may handle it just fine. But what I really want to do is to set the knitting down and play with him.

Loopy Monthly MixerYarn Mixer Challenge for August: Knit or Crochet a pattern that is Olympic-related, or that uses the colors of the Rio countryside.

Here is a link to the Olympic site for photo ideas.

Here is a link to Olympic patterns on Ravelry.

Fabric Mixer Challenge for August: Sew or Quilt a pattern that is Olympic-related, or that uses the colors of the Rio countryside.

Here is a link to a cool Olympic Dreams quilt. But of course there are many options out there!

I’m looking forward to the opening ceremonies tomorrow night, aren’t you?

  1. Actually I think it looks alot like the Mickey Mouse emblem which I love! I should since I live in Orlando! He is adorable!!!

  2. Our family got a new kitten too! Her name is Pepper and she is just about the same age as Oliver. It is sooo fun!

  3. What a cutie patootie! Oh and don’t be fooled by that “oh look at how cute I am” face. I see the mischief in his eyes. Just love it!! Have fun playing with him.

  4. Goodness! Another cutie!!!! It’s hard to get much done when there are so many good distractions! I’ve already blown my camp loopy for this year! I didn’t make July deadline and just started August!!! The bonus packs for each month more than make up my missing the deadlines though!
