Ladies and Gentlemen.
It's less than one week before the Vancouver 2010 Olympics kick off. Did you miss the memo?
Sooooo... WHAT THE HECK ARE YOU KNITTING!?!?!?
Hours of time will be spent sitting glued to our televisions watching women play hockey, men shoot down little hills on tobaggans the size of cell phones, boys and girls will be twirling around in lovely outfits with skates on ice... think of the knitting one could accomplish!
This wee photo captures my grand plans.
I want to make the sweater on the right... but with a bang trim and coloured contacts, I intend to look like the one on the left. (Who doesn't want to look like a Norwegian Olympic skiier/model?)
So, the 'rules' indicate that you can 'warm up'- which I've done. You can swatch, and since I sort of don't love swatches (despite my recent success with them), I did a headband instead.
Babies, I'm going for the gold (or at least a new sweater to match my headband).
