Knitting Olympics

Ok, decided to take part in Ravelympics... joined the Starmore WIPdown team and am trying to finish the body of my Anne Boleyn. This sweater has 347 stitches per round and I have 156 rounds to complete. I will have to knit 10 rounds per day to finish the body by the end of the olympics. I managed to finish my 10 rounds last night and again today, but who knows what next week will bring and if my arm will hold out?

On sad news, a Georgian olympian was killed in an luge accident yesterday during practice. I watched the footage and it was horrific. My thoughts go out to his family and team-mates.

    Good for you! You go girl!

    I am horrible, if a project is put on the back burner, well, it's all over. I just don't seem to be able to pick things back up. Luckily, I rarely deviate from one project till it's finished - but I know I'm a a rare duck.

    I also saw the footage of the accident, and was appalled at seeing what I saw!! (Had I known, I would have looked away.) They made an announcement last evening on NBC that it would not be shown again....they must have received lots of complaints. Just so insensitive IMO anyway!!
