Cast On!

The Ravellenic Games have officially begun, and I have officially missed the mass cast on party. We were still on our way back from St. Louis with the senior kidnapping youth event when mass cast on began, and yesterday was a catch up/recoup day that was *mostly* successful. (I decided laundry's unimportant this weekend.)

Tonight I'm officially casting on my project, which, unfortunately doesn't exist in the Ravelry database. Imagine that. The shawl I'm attempting completing is part of a kit D bought me for Christmas last year. (He let me pick it out. Isn't that thoughtful of him? :) He's the best.)

Ravellenic Games 2012!

I can't wait to finish it -- my first shawl, and it's going to be gorgeous! Hopefully the pattern's not too confusing or frustrating.

I also got many lovely birthday presents from some loved ones.... and although I love them all, I really wanted to share this one. It's from my grandparents and I can't wait to wear it once the weather finally cools off. The colors are so perfect, and my grandma found it at a farmers' market -- how perfect!
Birthday scarf!
It's been a rather exhausting weekend, so I'll leave you with this. Maybe I'll actually have a finished shawl to show off by the end of the Olympics!
