Community Eye Candy: Ravellenics!

decathlon socks

RiotousAssembly’s Decathlon – 10 socks, each knit in a different color of Wollmeise.

This year, over 5,000 Ravelers participated in the Ravellenic Games, a really fun Ravelry group event in which participants choose challenging projects to complete while they watch the Olympics. The Ravellenic Games finished on Sunday, and I couldn’t wait to share just a few of the thousands of Ravellenics projects in my Eye Candy post this week!

marymealittle’s Stranger Things Cowl is such a fun homage to the show! MyDailyFiber’s Pirate’s Voyage caught my eye because of the striking neutral gradient – then I saw the pretty beads and my face turned into the heart-eyes emoji. Mekone’s Humming Singles look so soft and delicate and are in my absolute favorite colors.

amylin’s Grey and Red Marius is such a great, classic sweater! zebraeule, a Ravellenics teammate of mine, delighted Team Just Wanna Have Fun with her happy squad of Ravellenicats. naganasu’s RavGames2016 Bruges Lace Pullover is so delicate and pretty.

Thank you to everyone who joined in the Ravellenic Games – it was a ton of fun! Special thanks to all the group moderators and volunteer organizers – we know that running a large group event like this on Ravelry is a whole lot of work and we hope that you enjoyed the process as much as all your group members did. Community events like this are part of what helps to make Ravelry so great!
