This year I have joined in with the Tour de France KAL on Ravelry. Different challenges are allocated to the different colour jerseys. I've chosen to join in with the green jersey (the points jersey) challenge which is to use up as much stash as possible during the three weeks of the Tour.
My socks for July were made using some double knitting yarn leftover from a jumper I knitted Grace a few years ago, so in terms of stash, it definitely needed busting.
So this is my first project to count towards my green jersey challenge.
I started the socks on Saturday, first day of the Tour. The pattern is Blueberry Waffle socks but it's difficult to see much of the texture in these photos.
A lovely easy (free) pattern to knit, perfect for speed knitting, keeping in time with the cyclists! You can see full details of this project over on Ravelry, here.
Now I'm moving on to my scrumptious pink shawl, also started on Saturday. This will take a bit longer to knit up, but plenty of race watching time over the next two weeks should see me through.
All this sport is keeping me in shape, or it would do if it wasn't for the chocolate bar I've just chomped my way through! Oops!
Bye for now.
