Gold medal for me
It looks kind of different from the original conception, but what the heck... Must make another of those curly scarves...
ps. I think Bob and Dick are off chatting up some figure skaters or something...

Bob! - you again?
Dick!!! - I suppose I should have expected to find you here.
Yes Bob - so, any news?
Yes Dick - I can confirm that we have a gold medal.
Which event is this Bob?
Well, Dick - it's the combined entry for the Charity Jumpers event. We have a Pink Bobbly thing and a Strip(e?)y Sweater.
(Bob - do you think she will ever learn to spell "Strip(e?)y"?
At this stage Dick, I expect not.)

I'm getting there!
Is there knitting this Saturday at the Grads Club? If I come, it'll be with two kids in tow, so I likely won't stay long.

half a sleeve, half a sleeve, half a sleeve, onward!
The body's done, complete with purple i-cord trim which you can't see because it's rolling up. Blocking'll fix that. The sleeve so far feels a bit loose on my arm. I'm going to leave it and start the other one and do the decreases faster on that one to see if I like the fit better.
In terms of yarn, I've got two more complete balls of pink in addition to what's in the picture. I think it might take four balls total to do both sleeves, so they'll end up with a wide purple cuff. The hood may or may not happen.

I'm loving the cables, but I'm slightly concerned by the fact that whenever I close my eyes, all I see is bright pink cables. Do you think that's permanent?
Off to Gay Pareee!

Not done as much as I'd like today - swollen glands and very sore throat sent me to bed this afternoon, but there's this evening to come...
cheering you on
(a) more haste, less speed
(b) time is of the essence
can't knit at the moment as my left arm started swelling up in the small hours of Saturday morning...back at normal size now, but not taking any chances
Progress (not much) and dyeing (lots) at my blog...
Here's a photo of some of the skeins blowin' in the wind at home yesterday though.
Hope anyone else at Textiles in Focus likes them enough to take them home!

The Knitting Olympics in Greek
Collecting these buttons is tons of fun. Too bad we have to stop soon to knit!
Tuesday, February 07, 2006
Things are getting a wee bit busy here, and I can't possibly add anything else to my Olympic schedule, but I did learn about this today. You knit a breast from this pattern, and they'll give the everyday ones to women who need them, and auction off the beaded, eyelash, wild and crazy ones to raise funds! Lucky for me, this is not only an Olympic event, but they will take the breasts till the end of May, so I have plenty of time. Ho ho, plenty of time....
I hope to see loads of people at the Fort St George on Friday, and it'll be fun to watch everyone's progress. I also think it would be a great idea if this blog continued after the Olympics to be a message board, group sharing thing. Good work, Liz!
Here's a button, first of all...
I'm hoping this actually comes out at the original size...
