I 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.
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?
