FO: 4th Place Finish
March 3, 2014
I finished my Olympic sweater, just a few hours late for a 4th place finish, just out of the medals! In olden days I would have been able to knit all Sunday morning and would have had this done, but this year I played cars instead, did puzzles, painted, and in other words played with my daughter. I am happy with my bulky sweater, as it is very, very cold in Calgary right now, and I am wearing it a lot just to stay warm. I extended the cable down the front which pulls the waist of the sweater in nicely, and made longer sleeves so that my forearms would not freeze. Right now I am all about warmth!
This weekend we headed up to Banff for a mini break and did exactly what I had planned: we stayed inside and went swimming. When we were not swimming we painted, ate, played, and slept. Grandpa came along and numerous water colour masterpieces soon decorated the chalet. I cannot say that I am not still tired, but I can say that I am less tired. Happy Birthday to me!
