This Olympic Update brought to you by...


a stretching break.

This is a fun garment, and I am really enjoying it, this Rogue thing. This was a good idea, and all for me, and I am glad I chose it. It is rare that I make more than an occasional sock for myself. I started at about 4:00pm Friday , and have got the kangaroo pocket done, and am working up the sides, about ten rows from attaching the pocket back to the front.

The trouble is that I really have to start work on this sweater for store demo. I finished the math calculations for all sizes this morning and am all ready to go. Rogue is distracting me. I must put it aside shortly and forgo the spirit of Olympic competition for the spirit of "Kathy needs her new garment". It helps that I don't have cable. I can forget about the whole Olympic thing if I have to. I know what I need. What I really need is a Martha Stewart type staff...someone to clean the house and walk the dogs so I can just knit!

Melissa! Hi! How is that I haven't visited your blog?! Negligent of me!

I didn't know that Megan was homeschooled--I was homeschooled for most of elementary and middle school and never quite fit in when I started high school. It does explain why she isn't the typical teenager, in a good way.

Last thing, a confession: I totally started a feather and fan scarf last night with my Rhapsody. Only a couple of inches, but it was HEAVENLY. This is probably akin to a cross country Olympic skier stopping to enjoy some hot chocolate at a ski lodge...

Yeah, my kids went to school for like 2 years while I got my RN, and then asked to be homeschooled cause they were not having any fun. The boy went back to school at 13 or 14, but Girl remains happily home educated. Girl is a farm child who gets busted at public events with a knife in her pocket 'cause she just finshed dispersing hay(yes, it did really happen).

Or an Olympic Snowboarder hitting a bong....in fact, considering the yarn, probably closer to that!
