Knitting Olympics

We've been watching the Olympics. It's been terrific.

Did you know Hannah Kearney was a knitter? She just won the Gold medal in Freestyle mogul skiing on Sat night. It was an amazing run and she was vindicated after failing to qualify for the finals in Torino in 2006, although she had been the favorite to win. The picture at right is from NBC, (c) NBC Sports / USOC.

She is so genuine and sweet in her interviews and watching her get the medal in the ceremony last night was fun, too.

Me, I am finishing my February Lady Sweater for my own Knitting Olympics, and then I plan to make another Tee before the Olympics officially closes in two weeks.
I don't want to hear how overzealous that plan is. So don't tell me.

Here's a sample of the four baby bibs I've made lately:
And now I have a question for you. If you were going to finish the bib below, would you use the pocket....or not? Been reading.... lots! The Jungle by Upton Sinclair. I didn't know it would end up being a proponent on Socialism. It was a perfect foil for another book I recently read, Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand, a proponent of Capitalism. It would have been very interesting to put them in a room and watch the sparks fly! See my current list for books read so far in 2010.

Olympian knitting continue!

The bib pocket is adorable, but I can only begin to imagine what would accumulate in there. ;)

Can't wait to see your finished sweater!

I remember reading The Jungle in 10th grade - secretly while I was supposed to be listening to my American government teacher. It had a profound impact on my adolescent mind. But Atlas Shrugged - it's the BEST! I just read We the Living by Ayn Rand. It was horrifying.

Pocket looks like a food catcher - but I love all those Baby Bibs O' Love - I need to get to work on some for a bunch of spring babies due in the next couple of months!
