My Olympics games,

The Olympic games in Beijing have started, but here in Austin, TX, they are going as well. I joined the “knitting and crochet” Olympics, organized by Ravelry, and signed up to “compete” in the event of “WIP Wrestling”, which is about finishing a bunch of projects. The project needs to be a challenge to complete in 17 days.  For me, it is about pulling out knitting stuffs that i shoved in a bag. All there is to do is a little sewing here and there, it is so simple, it frustrates me!

Here in Texas, taking a car ride means driving at least 5 to 6 hours, so I stay busy in the passenger seat knitting (no, I do not knit as I drive).  I have enjoyed making round dishcloths. My first ones were 1 solid color, then I begun working with 2 and sometimes 3 colors, alternating stiches as well. Baby hats and baby blankets are fun too!  Yes, there are many gifts on this blanket that are overdue! 

I am competing for Team French, check-out our blog! You will meet a group of very talented women

Here is my pile to finish before the flame goes up on August 24th:





I am also knitting a shawl, but I am not pleased with it so far. I think bigger needles will give a nice effect.  I thought, I was prepared, or maybe I am too picky! I hope to have some photos posted soon.


Make it a great day!
