Let's. Do. This.

Knit One, Crochet Too, Creme Brulee DK (Discontinued)

This yarn sat in the "crafty stuff storage room", (otherwise know as "the room where I place things I don't want to deal with right now") for quite some time. I bravely ventured into that room a few days ago because I was searching my stash for a suitable DK weight yarn that would take me all the way to the finish line of the Ravellenic Games.

If you're on Ravelry, a popular social networking site for knitters and crocheters, you already know about the Ravellenic Games.  But to those who might not know, here is the gist of this popular event:

The One Rule To Rule Them All: Challenge yourself by starting and finishing one or more projects during the 2016 Summer Olympics. (Taken from the Ravelry website.)

I found the yarn years ago at a local Goodwill while I was thrifting for vintage Pyrex.  I figured now is the time for it to make it's debut.  And this, my dears, is what it is going to be:

Croeso Shawlette

Isn't she beautiful? I have wanted this shawlette for a while, so The Games were the perfect opportunity for me to knit it.  I have joined Team Ebony Elite Sistah Friends in the "shawl sailing" event.  This will definitely be a challenge for me because I will be working on this shawl while working on this tank top.

Let's do this, Ladies!
