And so should be a knitter. But my anniversary jumped in the middle of my knitting progress so I put my BSA fleur-de-lis design down for a few days. Now it's time to pick it back up and work some more.
I have nearly finished three of the four panels. I can hardly wait to finish this blanket and block it so you can see how nice the fleur-de-lis look when blocked. I guess you could call this my Olympic knitting event. But I must confess, I didn't watch that much of the Olympics. I was really grossed out by Bob Costas' eye infection and couldn't even understand why he was on the air... before, during, or after. It was a real turn-off.
While I didn't officially enter this in the Ravellenic Knitting Competition - it has been my go-to knitting this month. My friends just the other day mentioned something about "not too many knitters watching the Olympics" and I quickly disavowed them of that misconception. I will confess, though, that I thought most of the knit headware was woefully under-done. The designs were underwhelming. Sigh. My favorite design item of this year's Olympics was none other than the Norwegian Curling team's Mondrian pants.
This week, I'll finish my new Boy Scout blanket design to the likes of Jane Austen or more Charles Dickens. While I'll be wearing something less exciting that Mondrian pants or hot pink blazers, I will be a Designing Lady. I especially like the tradition of Scouting and the Olympics. You can click HERE to see who has gone for the gold while wearing the Eagle Scout badge (or other Scouting badges.) Here's hoping that I win gold for this design.
