I had great intentions of taking pictures at the Olympic Closing Ceremony at Fabric Works on Sunday. However, I was frantically trying to weave in ends and finish up my sweater. Plus, the hockey game was on and you haven’t seen knitters until you’ve seen them screaming at a hockey game. One of my Optimist Club members stopped by to drop off some hats and was shocked to see everyone watching the USA/Canada game.
You might notice that my Slinky Ribs sweater is missing its arms. I haven’t decided yet if I’m going to leave it as it is or if I’m going to knit long sleeves. I wore it today under a black short sleeved shirt and solicited opinions everywhere I went. I kind of like it as a vest, but I think a long sleeved sweater will have a more timeless look.
As part of the Knitting Olympics, several Optimist Club members and other knitters donated 156 hats and 2 blankets to SMDC’s birthcenter. I am completely blown away by the generosity of knitters.
Now that my sweater project is in a lull, I’ve got a full blown case of Start-itus. I’m trying to figure out what knitting I’ll take along on my trip next week. In the meantime I’m trying to finish up a very old Unfinished Object (UFO). I’m not sure how much I’ll be blogging next week – it will probably depend on whether I take my laptop with me to Florida or not. Right now I’m thinking not. No worries though, there will be plenty of knitting on the beach and I promise to take pictures.
