My entry for the 2014 Ravellenic Winter Games, Vodka Lemonade, is doing well.
I'm into the waist shaping, and I hope to get to at least the first sleeve by the end of the week. Not sure if I can get it all done before the end of the games, but I should be close. It's a great pattern, a pleasant knit, and I really need to do more with the Silky Wool.
My Sochi Update
I've also been watching a lot of Olympic coverage while knitting. America's performance in my favorite sport, speed skating has been dismal with no medals. At first, the blame went to the new uniforms. Then, they went back to their old ones, and that didn't help.
My opinion: It must be the Dutch.
Even though I don't understand it, I'm fascinated by curling. The Americans haven't done well, but I'm consoling myself with my Olympic crush from Team Norway, Thomas Ulsrud.
So cute, I'll even endure a Cheetah Girl's song for him.
It must be those pants.
Surprisingly, I've been loving the ice dancing. Generally, I've been dismissive of ice dancing as shallow and somewhat sketchy discipline, but I'm coming around a bit. Davis and White were superb last night and are in contention for gold today.
The commentary by the always fabulous Johnny Weir and Tara Lipinsky have been helpful and educational as well. My biggest takeaway is that I now know what a twizzle is.
Neil Finn's new album, Dizzy Heights dropped last week, and I'm digging it. Recluse is one of my early favorites.
....but it’s people that lose when you become a recluse...
Must be the music because it's always the music.
