Ravelympics Progress

Ravelympics is basically a giant knit-a-long taking place during the Olympics.  If you like, you can find out more over on Ravelry.  I’m working on several WIPs:

This is the not-picked-up-in-a-while Crochet Lace Dress.  The skirt is coming along nicely, especially compared to the bodice.  As soon as I started the sleeves, the whole thing started pulling.  Once I’m done with the skirt, I’ll have to go back and redo the top, at least back to the sleeves.  The yarn is some old cotton thread that’s been in my stash forever.  I’m pretty sure I won’t use up this one cone on this dress.  This is another of the possible dresses I’ll be wearing to a June wedding.  I actually found a THIRD possibility recently, this beauty, called the Lotus Smock:

Of course, Joanne’s will have their Vogue’s on sale again soon, and I’m going to snag, among others a new Rebecca Taylor Pattern:

I have a silk Carmeuse print that’s almost the same as the one in the photo.  It’s something to fall back on, in case the knitting/crocheting fails.  For now, though, I’ll plod along with the crochet lace, at least until my wrist falls off!!
