knitting olympics win…and fail


YIP: February 24

I finished my socks! As I predicted, once I got down to it, the second one only took about a day and half to finish.

Fail: I was motoring along on my black Terra sweater, getting ready to finish it up tonight and block it so I could wear it tomorrow. Body and sleeves totally done, one buttonband done. Fits awesomely. I go to get the last skein of yarn to wind….

…and I left it at work. Booooo.

I guess it’s being left behind while I take off to Boston for a week!

    Ooh, so sad. Oddly enough, I was worried about leaving my sweater at work yesterday too, but my OCD kicked in and I remembered it!

    We’ve watched all sorts of unexpected things derail Olympic hopefuls in the past two weeks–bad coaching, fog, broken shoe lace, crashes, etc. Forgotten yarn is another to add to the list. Sorry. Love the socks.

    The socks are glorious. Such a beautiful color.

    A black sweater should be on my to do list, because it is the color I wear most often. Do you find knitting with black a little bit more difficult than knitting with a lighter color?
