An exciting few days so far with the Opening Ceremonies and the first day of the Olympics!
I got in a pre-Olympics swim Friday with my new swim cap and goggles :) Then headed to my sister's for a little Opening Ceremonies party!
I think Danny Boyle did an awesome job on the ceremonies! Loved James Bond and the Queen, the children's literature part, David Beckham, the flame, everything! I can't wait to go back to London....I have to say the city has looked amazing the last few days!
My mom even brought her knitting to the party! I actually didn't make as much progress between chit-chatting and watching, but when I was home for the flame, this is where I was.
I was mulling over your advice about the color for my shawl, so I started on another quick Dotty hat (I know, I know, must write up the pattern! But I wanted to try a guy version without the yarn over this time).
This is where I was last night after archery, swimming, basketball, beach volleyball, and more! And then after gymnastics and more swimming, I finished it last night! Pictures to come soon! I cast on last night with the gray and blue for the shawl (thanks guys!)!
So are you you enjoying the Olympics so far? How's your Ravellenic Games knitting going? Favorite moments so far? It was nice to see Ryan Lochte win gold, but I hope Michael can pull through for the rest of the games!
