May have made it in - Waiting for the torch
Topic: Knitting Olympics '06
When digging around I discovered that I missed the single person sign up deadline but we're not letting that stop us. Mom and I are going to push on and knit away anyway. (I am still trying to see if we can be a team on our own and be "official participants" or join onto some team somwhere that can use 2 more people but I haven't gotten a reply yet . . . not going to hold us back either way tho)
My pattern is chosen and my yarn is ready I'll be knitting a top down Henley for Women
in cotton with the hopes that I will end up with a nice summer sweater when the Olympics are over.
Mom has chosen a nice poncho out of a soft spun yarn that should drape quite nicely. (I'll see if my stepfather can scan the picture later)
Both of these projects should challenge us.
I will confirm this but I believe the torch is to be lit tonight at 6PM est. With working to 4:30 and having 2 dogs, gathering the remaining knitting items , getting the dogs out for their walk, getting down to Mom's and settling all 4 dogs in while grabbing a bite to eat . . .CO at 6PM is not possible so we're starting ours at 7PM.
Let the Knitting begin!!!!!!
We may be an official participating tem of 2!!!
OK rules state no cast on until the torch is lit soo . .. .here we are ready and chomping at the bit to start.
Unfortunately the torch lighting is the last thing to happen . . .so much for starting tonight, we're planning on getting up early and starting first thing at our own houses then meeting up again at mom's for some group knitting time.
