I'm just happy I made the team

Well, I didn't finish my knitting olympics project. Like Bode Miller, I've got a DNF after my name. I tried, but I ran out of yarn and my LYS says it'll be in the middle of this week. So I made a start, and it's a gorgeous scarf (or will be when it's done). Now I'm just hoping I finish it before the cold weather disappears.

On the other hand, I did finish another object, a purse that I made out of some of the recycled sari yarn my mom gave me for Christmas. I even finished it during the closing ceremonies, so it sort of counts, right?

And I taught both kids to knit. This is really to me the most amazing part. Nick has not only (sort of) learned to knit (his work is still a little hole-y), he has also started a yarn stash. The other day when I went by the Yarn Lounge for more yarn, and inspiration, he ended up buying a skein of this (brushed, not kid), for when he gets better at knitting. He wants to make himself a pillow out of it.

It's good to have goals.

Beautiful purse, Libby!
This U.S. judge gives it a 9.5. (For one of those scones I'll make it a 10...)

Vey nice! And good for Nick, too. A much better way of developing hand-eye coordination than videogames, in my opinion!

Good thinking, Kate. And, thanks, Mamacita. Maybe I'll bring some to coffee hour some morning...
