Olympic Fail

There was no finishing of knitting projects during the Olympics. I was lucky enough to make some progress on a single sock, but I'm probably still 2 weeks away from finishing the single sock and probably months away from finishing the pair. I think I'm learning my lesson about knitting complicated socks. For me it's not nearly as satisfying as the boring old vanilla. What I really love about sock knitting is the mindlessness of it. The ribbed cable socks have required more thinking than I prefer to spend. Just moving the yarn to the front and back for ribbing is more work than I'm willing to do. Perhaps I should give in and learn continental knitting as ribbing would go by so much faster that way.

However, to my surprise I am almost finished knitting this sweater in GGH Savannah. I'm halfway through the second sleeve and with any luck I will be able to wash and block the pieces and maybe even seam everything next week. Too bad it's going to be a while before I'll really need to wear a chunky sweater.

Fortunately I'm giving myself a lot of extra credit for this big project:

What's going on now?

Miracles have happened and husbeast received and accepted a job offer at his dream company last week. He starts work soon. We are breathing sighs of relief and expecting great things ahead.

I'm knitting. I've been caring for my two sons, living at my MIL's house, volunteering at our local co-op preschool and gardening. Trying to find time to write and to redefine this blog to embrace my current reality.
