Let's talk about Women's Long Track Speed Skating!!! After the 5000 I was a bit concerned that Clara Hughes was going to pull a muscle in her face she was smiling so hard! Today was one of those days in the Olympics that I love. Close races. Cause to jump up and down cheering as the skaters come around on the final lap.
(Note: PUT DOWN KNITTING NEEDLES when watching close races. You will NOT be able to knit, and, you could seriously injure yourself. Seriously.)
Also, Cindy Klassen set a new record for total medals in a single Olympics.
AND (!!) 2 Silvers in Men's Short Track Speed Skating
I'm exhausted from the tension and the jumping up and down and the cheering.
CANADIAN KNITTER WINS GOLD MEDAL IN FAIR ISLE KNITTING
As Brian Williams from CBC would say, this knitter wins this Gold Medal with snow on the seat of her pants (referring to the many figure skaters who fell but still medalled). It's done, but I'm not completely happy with it. Due to the gauge issues, there is some wonkiness in the set in sleeves. You can't really see it in the picture up there (of course. I showed you the sleeve that doesn't have as much wonkiness. You want to see it? Okay.)
One of the sleeve caps is almost, ugh, a puff sleeve. The sweater is currently enjoying a soak in the bath, as I am hoping that I will be able to ease out some of the
It still counts though, right?
Now, where did I leave my notes on the cabled cardigan...
