Go! Go! Go!

First question, are you guys getting any work done with the Olympics on??  It was soooo hard to go to work today.  Why can't I stay home, watch the Olympics and knit?


Next question, can you knit during some of those close races??  I'll admit, it was hard to knit during the end of men's gymnastics tonight and some of the swimming events!  But my shawl is moving along nicely and I'm loving the colors (thank you guys!!)!  I'll most likely put this on hold once I get to the lace section as I really need to finish my Sunshine Yarns design and I'm so close to finishing that.

My first Ravellenic Games project is done!


Now that I've knit this hat six times (easy peasy knit!), I really need to write up the pattern.  I wanted to do a "guy" version though, without the yarn overs.  Here it is in The Plucky Knitter Primo Worsted, colorway Oz.

Reminder that Tuesday is the last day for my Olympic sale!  All IGK individual designs are 30% off when you enter the coupon code: goforgold  in the ravelry shopping cart.

Tomorrow night I'll be cheering on Michael Phelps as he goes for the gold! And go Team USA in the Women's Gymnastics!  We are even moving knit nite to a local bar/restaurant to knit while watching the games (well, and drinking margaritas!)!

Happy Olympics!

Be careful with those margaritas! Sometimes they wreak havoc with the knitting...

Wasn't the end of the men's gymnastics dramatic? Fascinating!

I fell asleep during the men's gymnastics and missed the ending :-( Maybe tonight I can stay awake for the women! I've been loving the diving and the swimming. Water Polo was fun to watch too. Oh, and all my boys like the women's beach volleyball even though it was cold last night and they weren't wearing the bikinis :-) As for the knitting... I've had to reknit the sleeve cap of the sweater I'm working on because I apparently can't "maintain lace pattern and decrease at the same time" while watching tv :-)

Ooo, please write up the pattern for my hat! I'm a huge fan of your patterns, and I'd love to knit up the guy version for my boyfriend.
