Am I the only one who’s noticed the preponderance of sass on this page? Where, you might ask, is the knitting?
Since I’m in the throes of finishing a holiday gift for my DIL (a regular observer of my blog) I can’t provide a show & tell without ruining the surprise. Instead, I bring you news of Yarn Harlot’s Knitting Olympic challenge. Cast-on during the opening ceremonies, finish before the flame is extinguished. Swatching beforehand is acceptable and falls under the category of “training.”
I’m still contemplating this one. It might be fun to felt a luge. But, if there’s drug testing involved, I’m out for sure. My only chance at a medal would be if:
- carbo-loading includes cookies
- brandy manhattans qualify as an electrolyte replacement drink
- I can knit fast enough to get my heart rate monitor into the fat-burning zone while sitting on my arse
- akabini and BlueGal don’t make me laugh one single time when we’re hanging out in the West Coast Olympic Village
Against all my better judgement, I’m drawn to the challenge. Please, someone, talk me out of this!
