i forgot to post this before the olympics started.
I finally carded and spun the very last skein i need for the B. Orange sweater. Here the boy, the sweater pieces, and the final skein wait patiently to be united at last. For those of you who haven't met him, his shirt isn't orange by chance. he wears that color every day. its his 'thing'.
I can't really complain. i'm obsessed with sheep.
re: knitting olympics.
I finished the first sleeve! second sleeve is half done. sudden plan changes dictate that i will be spending at least 18 hours in the car this weekend. (long story for another day.) I should be able to get a ton of knitting done, as long as i don't get car sick. I have a sneeking suspicion that following a pattern and knitting in the car will be bad news, but i'm keeping my hopes up.
Right now its past midnight. I have insomnia. i'm trying to stay quiet because we're staying at someone else's house. my knitting? OUT IN THE CAR. i can't go get it. shoot me, please?
