First there was the Knitter’s Book of Wool group on Ravelry, which Clara and I put together a few weeks ago. Next, there was Clara’s devilishly clever Woolalong in the KBOW group as well as at Knitter’s Review — each month she’ll choose a breed and we’ll knit something with its yarn. This month it’s Cormo. Now, the 2010 Knitting Olympics have been thrown into the mix, and I’m in. Deep.
I have the yarn — this [insert appropriate gushing adjective(s) here] Bijou Bliss 50% Yak 50% Cormo that is a soft natural white. I have the pattern — Jared Flood’s Porom Hat. And last but not least, I have my community. Knitting is never solitary, even when I’m at home by myself, because I have a world of knitters right here on my computer. I can’t wait to cast on during tomorrow’s Opening Ceremonies, along with a few thousand friends!
