2-7-2014 Opening Ceremonies and LYS Knit Olympics

During the beautiful Opening Ceremonies
for the 2014 Winter Olympics
in Sochi, Russia this evening LYS
began a "Knit-Olympics"...
The project: "Thrummed Mittens".
We casted on our mittens
during tonight's "Sit & Knit" session
and we have 2 weeks until closing ceremonies
to finish our mittens!

Since I made a pair of thrummed mittens last year
and my husband LOVES how warm they are,
I've decided to make another pair... for him...
using black wool yarn and black/brown alpaca thrums
to match his black coats and jackets:

Most of the other knitters are making white mittens
and using the colors of the Olympic rings
for the thrums
for their "Knit Olympics":
