On opening ceremony night we all settled down to cast on for a new project at Stacey's house. Everyone brought great stuff to eat and yummy stuff to drink.
I had to have everyone tell me what was being said on the TV since my ears are full of who knows what gunk from this cold, and I can't hear a darn thing. If I were my Papa, right then I would be sitting in my recliner with a cigarette between my fingers, grousing, "If you young people would just quit muttering and mumbling, a decent person could hear what was going on! Now TURN UP THE TV!!!"
Also, I might have had a little to much of a peach martini...Sharron makes them STRONG! Oh, but they were good!
So, on my own Olympic knitting, It's day 4 of the Olympics and I seem to be progressing pretty fast. I've finished both fronts, and the back. However, I just ripped out the top 5 in. of one front since I can't get the decreases quite right. It has one of those "At the same time" things, which I HATE with a passion! So, that is screwing me up big time.
Here's a sneak peak of the long amount of stockinette. So, I have to re-knit the top of one front, seam it together, then pick up all the sleeve edges and the front and neckline edges for the deep ribbing. Hopefully, I can get this done pretty quickly...
My next goal is a possibility between two items. First, to knit a red and white Maple Leaf hat, or, to finish spinning up some VERY soft and very purple roving that I'm enamored with right now. I haven't decided. I think the hat is more appropriate. It's pretty cool, and I think it might have to be a gift for someone who is sending me a gift from way up north where the Olympics are happening. Gotta love my Vancouver-ite Family. Hi guys!
