Day 12: The Thrill of Victory and the Agony of...

I can't even type the words. Sob

We were all very excited at work. One of the managers brought in a TV. We could watch The Game!

Our excitement was short lived. Much sadness ensued. Several non-PG words were shouted. (not all of them by me).

However... Watching replays and seeing the pictures of Chandra Crawford receiving her Gold for the Sprint in Cross Country Skiing (alternate name: Running with planks on your feet) is enough to put a grin on any face. With all the cocky winners, the "Yeah, I knew I had it all along" post-victory interviews, watching this skier beam from ear to ear, is refreshing.

There was also a really great Silver for the Canadian Women's Short Track Relay team! AND a Gold and Silver in Long Track speed skating!!

Hockey? What hockey?


I have divided for front and back and I'm knitting both sides of the v-neck at the same time.

(is that the most interesting knitting update you've ever read?)

Thanks for all the encouragement! I think I can do it. And, as we all know, "I think I can" will TOTALLY get this train to the top of the mountain. er. "I think I can" will TOTALLY get this sweater knit by Sunday. Is it really Wednesday already?

And ferg? Thanks for considering my brief side-trip as "having a life outside of knitting"!! That made me laugh for quite some time...


  1. I love The Hour (on CBC NewsWorld) and today George was talking about the mixed olympic results, and he said that the ups and downs are why he loves sports. In sports there's good and bad, like in a person's daily life (unlike world news, which is basically all bad). And then he said something along the lines of "it's like being in love, there's good and bad, and you never know which one is going to come next". I thought that was great.
    Anyway! tangent over. The sweater is looking great. I'm getting bored with mine, are you getting there yet? And cute, cute twin pictures yesterday.

  2. I hope I didn't offend, it's just that most knitting blogs make it seem like there's no life other than Knitting and it's all got a bit more frenzied during the olympics. I'm sure you have a wonderful life that they ought to make a movie out of, cheers Gillian
    ps the knitting is awesome. I cant handle circulars very well at all. I'm terrific at scarves though.

  3. I've just posted some rugging stuff. After the "hookie", I'm going to have a go at "proddie" and then "braiding" so I'll keep posting. Cheers, Gillian
