Happy Ravalentine's O'Lympics Day!

The Winter Olympics are upon us, as is Valentine's Day weekend. I know that a lot of you are busy participating in the Ravelympics (an event of olympic proportions on ravelry, in conjunction with, you guessed it, the winter olympics.) I am going to make a traditional colorwork norwegian cross-country ski hat, and I will attempt to finish several works in progress by the time the flame is extinguished in Vancouver.
I'm baking a batch of brownies today, for dessert after an early Valentine's Day dinner. Chocolate-y dessert somehow always helps my knitting along, don't know why...

And why, you may ask, are there picures of yarn here?

Well I got to thinking that some sweet pink yarn might be in order. So I updated the etsy shop . This is the Periwinkle Sheep watercolors II sock yarn, 100% merino wool, approx. 400 yds/skein; kettle dyed.

I think that 'lovely' and 'sophisticated' would go together really well in a lace shawl, with one being the border to the other, but that is just my humble opinion.
I also decided to discontinue one of my yarns.....I've loved this yarn. It is a sportweight merino yarn that is very soft and has great yardage. But it was time to make a decision, the result of which is that I am putting the sportweight merino on sale until it is gone. There will be more colors posted next week. (Hopefully the construction in my house will be over and done with soooon. Cross you knitting needles for me!)
Happy Ravalentine's O'Lympics Day/weekend!
