The first event I am working on is the Sock Put. Yes, like Shot Put but instead of hurling a ball 30+ Feet (yes, this photo is from me in high school track - a bazillion years ago), I am working on knitting a pair of socks during the Olympics Games. So far...well, I could really use a vacation day or two from work to get on task but since I'm a good gal, I am just hitting the heel on my first sock and will simply take my chances on the finish line deadline. If I were to finish this pair by Sunday, I could possibly make the schedule. We'll see.
The second project is a baby hat for a co-worker. I won't be posting any photos beyond this one nor will I tell what it will become (unless you can take a good guess) until after the baby shower next week. I am using 100% Cotton Made 100% in the USA. This is for the Baby Dressage Event. Which Olympic event this is supposed to mimic? The horse event that has been in the news due to Mitt Romney. Yeah, hmmpf, that's all I will say.
I will be completing a skein or two for the Handspun Heptathlon but I am denying myself my spinning wheel and spindles until I get at least one sock completed. Now...share your adventures in Fiber Arts! As always, thank you for visiting my blog and sharing your Fiber Arts Blog.
