My husband just called out to tell me that the Knitting Olympics have made Time magazine. Here it is online; or here: NO IDLE HANDS For the 16-day Knitting Olympics, some 4,000 crafty couch potatoes have set a series of stitching goals they want to reach while watching the Games. Charitable projects include making clothes for U.S. pregnancy centers and for tots in Mongolia.
I take offense to the "crafty couch potato" part. Big-time.
The left front of Williamsro is all but finished. Woo. It very neatly used up almost exactly two hanks of yarn. I think I will be safe in the yarn department. Woo again.
Among the places Katie visited in Wales last weekend was Tintern Abbey. You don't know how easily I could make this a UK photo blog over the next couple of months... The pictures -- this place and its surroundings -- nearly bring me to tears. Maybe it's just me and where I'm at right now and that the sun is shining and the ceiling is the sky and the floor is grass and even without glass, those windows are breathtaking...
It might also be my daughter's sense of humor. This one is entitled: Chuck Taylor goes to Tintern Abbey, Wales. ; )
