Oh MY! With Time to Spare?

It's late, there's still more ice dancing (which regretfully, I will miss, but work calls early in the morning), but I wanted to share my completed Knitting Olympics project with you!

A pair (like those who ice dance) virtually perfectly matched (haha!)

Except on the inside - this is the better of the two, and I include it because Jocelyn asked for it...

And here, famously are the Afterthought Thumbs. Not too shabby...

Can you tell what alteration I made? It was sooo obvious, I smacked myself in the head when my knitting mentor, Rae asked yesterday at KnitIn: "Well, sure you could felt them but that won't affect the length. Why don't you just rip back the top of the one that's too long and knit it shorter."

DUH.

Plain as the nose on my face!

And now I have to notify Stephanie's people! Can't wait to get my medal....!

And then of course, it's on with the Team Stashdown challenge of completing as much as possible of Helsinki. I managed 4 rows tonight!
(and went to yoga class, too)
(((hugs))

You do Fair Isle so well, I hope you do more of it. These are very cheery indeed (and I'm glad Jocelyn asked for the inside scoop!).

You are smarter than I am. I've stayed up every single night during the Olympics to watch.

I'm glad they're ending because I cannot survive on 4-5 hours of sleep a night!

Namaste

I honor the place in you,

which is of love, truth, light, and peace.

When you are centered in that place in you,

and I am centered in that place in me,

we are one.
