I know you are waiting with baited breath to see how much progress I’ve made:
By Sunday night I was at 5.5 inches (1 inch ahead of schedule) and as of last night I was at 7.25 inches, plus I started the toe of the 2nd sock for some variety. I have to make a lot of those blue and white stripes in order to fit my loooooong feet. I have 1.25 inches left to go before the heel, and between the two socks I’m still about an inch ahead of my planned schedule.
I wanted to knit all day long, but I forced myself to work so that I could sit and watch Olympics and knit. I enjoy watching the Olympics, even the sports I have no interest in, or know nothing about. Those snowboarders! Wow! They are crazy!!!
And the figure skating: I like that the best.
But has anyone else been paying attention to what the athletes are wearing? And not just the figure skaters? The US Snowboarders: didn’t it look like they were wearing blue jeans? I realized after awhile that they must be snowpants styled to look like blue jeans, but I was so surprised at first. Then, I realized that those snowboarders have a different kind of…style? Attitude? And realized that to me, the blue jean-snowpants were just about perfect. And thanks to Mr. Google, here’s an article about their uniforms, with photos, and I was right: they are Gore-tex, but styled to look like jeans. Like…jeans that someone has already worn in and loved for a long time…
I like them, even if no one else approves.
