Yea - Finished!

My Olympic experience is complete :( - and I finished my sockapoolza socks! Two birds with one stone so to speak!!

I am sad to leave the village - but I need to finish other projects so I can start some new ones - I'm so fickle. This Olympic experience has been incredible - I still can't imagine that there are over 4000 of us knitting for our personal best ....these are the fastest socks I've ever finished - 8 evenings - remember I switched events and started these last Monday - not bad for me.

I wish the camera did a better job with the colors - they really are pretty - very springy - more Easter I think than Yellowstone - but just right any way.

I have had a terrible day at work - it just amazes me how incompetance is encouraged and tolerated. Bad management, inaccurancy and big companies who think they rule how thier little suppliers do business.......I could go on and on but this isn't the place!

Hopefully my new washer will come this weekend, my light will be replaced in sooner than the three weeks (come on - what happened to overnight shipping?), I'll find a new job soon - etc, etc....all this so I can concentrate on what's really important - what am I going to knit next.

Something for Pumpkin???.... The Man of our house!

Knit on Olympians - the finish line is in sight and we've all given it our hearts!!

Oh what a funny cat!! Love the socks ... you did a beautiful job. I love to knit socks also. But I love to wear them the best, LOL.

Well, I reached the scary part of my Olympic challenge ... once I got up the nerve to cut ... I just went ahead and DID IT! Only 4 days to finish and I've got a lot more to do tho ... the final front steek and the borders.
