Or how to keep in touch with your best knitwits when you live 3,000 miles away from them

our blog has been so lonely for the month of january.

vv, i'm probably going to call you tomorrow all in a panic. what started out as THE COOLEST THING EVER is not going quite as well as i was anticipating. our living section is doing a story on the knitting olympics to run feb 10th (the day they start). so i'm supposed to knit olympic rings to illustrate the story with. i've never done intarsia before and i am not at all happy with the results of tonight's knitting.

any olympians in the house?

have y'all seen the knitting olympics stephanie has proposed on yarnharlot? i think peggy from work is successfully drawing me into it. i'm thinking the shrunken cardigan from knit and tonic, but i've got some time to decide...

how is everyone? beverly, haven't heard you on here in ages, i'm starting to worry, so speak up!

Knit and Tonic sweater

The sweater is Marilyn's Not So Shruken Cardigan from knit and tonic. I read her blog all the time, which is odd, because I don't read many blogs all that often. The sweater I am really close to finishing is her Somewhat Cowl sweater. I finished a bunch of swatches for the other blog, but I haven't been feeling like myself lately and haven't gotten around to taking pictures of them to post.

Sorry I've been away...

This blog thing is kicking my ass. Trying to have a life, finish knitting a sweater I desperately want to wear and trying to knit every stitch in this book is eating quite a chunk of time.

It's weird feeling tied to a blog that you know no one is reading, but I'm really enjoying learning the stitches.

Work's been a little busy. The Seahawks have a shot at the Super Bowl and that is keeping the guy next to me extremely busy, which makes me busy picking up the other stuff that he would normally do. He's doing a great job though.

I also am trying to get a group from the paper to go up to Whistler for a snowboarding/downhill skiing/crosscountry skiing/snowshoeing trip. Aaackkk!

You must try the cowl sweater, it's turning out great. I'll post a picture of it when it's done.

Oh, I'm going to be in Florida this weekend, visiting fam, but I have two super-long plane rides, hopefully I can finish some of my projects.

is it time to hibernate?

ladies! where have we all gone? i don't know about the rest of y'all but i've knit less in the last two weeks combined that i knit in a single day in the months leading up to the holidays. but i'm gearing up to get going again. joe's mother got me subscriptions to both interweve knits and spin off, so i'm pretty excited.

what's everyone else up to?
