Cloudy & chilly – we’re supposed to get a dusting later.
How’s the Knitting Olympics project coming along? Not so well. As usual I was off to a rockin’ start and then my fickle hands got distracted by a new project. I knit most of this during the Opening Ceremonies thirteen days ago and I haven’t made any progress since then. So I’m definitely not medaling this time around – maybe in 2010 if I train hard enough.
