I’m trying to figure out why I care if I complete my Ravelympic project. It’s not like I’m going to get a hunk of gold. All I’ll get is a button to put on my blog. I’m not competitive. I’m not a monogamous knitter, by any stretch of the imagination. I’ve decided it’s because I don’t really have measurable goals in my life. Maybe I should set some laundry goals. Or the most consecutive nights I prepare tasty meals for my family. Or maybe, I’ll just keep knitting like a woman posessed!!!
Here was the view out the window of our hotel last night.
I don’t know if I’ve ever seen a tree so covered with lights.
My knitting last night didn’t go well at all. I knit one row on the plane on the way to Colorado. Last night I had to fix about half of the row. And my rows are at about 500 stitches right now. On top of that, I ended up with one of those lovely high altitude headaches.
Today is going much better. Here’s my knitting spot.
The sliding door is open and there’s a wonderfully cool Colorado breeze coming in the window, along with the smells of some gourmet (garlic) cooking.
I’ve pounded out 8 rows this morning. All my mistakes were fixed last night. I have about 8 rows to go and then I start the ruffle. I won’t show you a photo because it looks like the black blob you saw a few days ago.
I’m off for some intensely competitive relaxing knitting!
