What Olympic event would best describe you knitting/crocheting style?
I would have to say I'm a pentathlon knitter. This requires knowledge of several different techniques, but not total mastery of just one.
Those of you who are not familiar with the Modern Pentathlon here is a brief overview:
The modern pentathlon is an Olympic sport which consists of competition in five events in one grueling day. Competitors earn points for their performances in each of the five disciplines: pistol shooting, epee fencing, swimming, riding (equestrian show jumping) and cross-country running.
And how are my "events" coming along? I completed my heel for sock #1 last night and did the ankle, plus about an inch of the leg. I still have lots more knitting to do, but maybe I can finish it tonight.
I ripped out my scarf. I did not like how wide it was, or how loose looking. So I changed to size 8 needles and only cast on 16 stitches. Hopefully it will look better. But this scarf is FAST, so I don't think I'll have any problem getting it done in time.
Tomorrow I will have to make a few more cloths and whip up a purse for a swap. I love crochet. You can whip up a bag in no time, and it still looks pretty decent.
I bought some yarn at HL the other day. Sport Weight yarn for a pair of fingerless gloves. I need to get done with all these other projects so I can cast on some more. Or maybe I should get off the computer and do some knitting...
Next week I am going to start home schooling my girls. They want to start now, but I'm not quite ready. Plus I still need to get a few more books...but we can wing it until then. My oldest son started yesterday. I don't understand why they would have 2 half days instead of giving them an extra day off and start with a full day. But I guess a lot of that does not make sense to me anyway.
I have no pics today. Guess I'm going to try and do a few rounds on my socks. Hopefully I can show you the completed sock tomorrow!
