Dinner will be late--I have to get gauge!
Official Knitting Olympics Post
Tomorrow is Opening Day of the Knitting Olympics. Ask me how my project preparation is going.
Gah! Don't ask!
I'm excited about starting, and I'm getting comfortable with all the necessary apparatus (apparatae? apparatuses?)
Don't ask me what I'm doing there. I have no idea. I just learned how to use the double-pointed needles like 10 minutes before I took that picture.
Oooh, look! A triangle! Just like in the books! I'm on my way to Olympic glory!
So that was, what, Tuesday? On Wednesday night I started knitting with the Intended Yarn on the smaller needles. I did this at the Library board meeting--they must have thought I was nuts ("Is she pulling another needle out of her bag?"). Oh well. I learned a lot and was able to shut up a bigot, so that's cool.
Love! Thy name is yarn!
Now I must run and start working the Intended Yarn on the appropriate-size needles, get gauge, measure my hat, and plot my plan of attack for the 2pm cast-on tomorrow. And make dinner. Acutally, I'm only making the side dish of dinner (vegan nachos to complement our burritos from El Burrito Loco). And I'm probably going to make Nick do that.
tsk... all these sacrifices I must make for my art.
