I am in love with this sweater!


Ok, I will come clean right now, I am modifying this sweater heavily. But I'm cruising through it quickly.

Of course it helps that it was a three-day weekend here and I couldn't get on the computer because a pair of boys hogged it all weekend.

Regardless, if I can keep up this pace I should be done with the sweater by mid-week. Blocking should take a day and finishing--if what I have in mind works--should take another few days.

We've been digging watching the Olympics. I love them so much more than the summer Olympics.

After watching the men's biathlon slush-a-thon, I'm still scratching my head over why the COA decided to offer up Vancouver for the winter Olympics. I guess Calgary and Quebec City were too cold and snowy?

Speaking of cold and snowy, I will leave you with the 22 cent snowman.


Ha ha! Chunky couldn't find anything else to use for eyeballs and a face. Apparently he's sad because that's the only way he could get the mouth to stick.

Don't worry, now that it's warmed up, the 22 cents has been properly retrieved!

I'm not sure why they gave the Olympics there. As one newscaster pointed out, this is the NORMAL tmperature for the region. they would have been better to do them wHere I live, we haven't been bove 0 in months. Not much snow, but if it's cold, they can make that.

And wow that is a fast knit! I take MONTHS to knit sweaers. sometimes years

That is the most awesome snowman ever!

Usually vancouver is a lot snowier... especially whistler... it's just the funky weather pattern this year... I mean, they had 3 inches of snow in Nashville this year... it's el nino or something.

All the stuff in Vancouver itself is indoors, and as someone else said, Whistler is what's really getting killed by the abnormal weather.

Two boys kept you off the computer? Moochie can type? Oh, wait ... ;-)

Yeah, hubby was wondering the same thing! Tonite was awesome with the snowboard cross and pairs skating... I like the color you chose for your sweater :)

Aww, why so glum, Mr. Snowman?

That sweater looks delicious. Is the yarn as soft as it looks?

Nice color for your sweater.

Love the 22-cent snowman! Although I'm a little afraid to inquire into the details of getting the mouth to stick.

That's a pretty green. What yarn are you using (or did you already say and I was inattentive)?

to be fair, they already did calgary. and maybe they just want to show off their mad helicopter skillz by lifting in all that snow?

can't wait to see the (modified) sweater.

No one in my family wanted to build a snowman. I was going to pay some little kid to come and do it.......

We finally saw a snowman on the way home from work. He had a gread snow hat. And he was huge.

I love your green. What's the yarn?

Yeah, this is the slushiest winter olympics ever, we were just saying the same thing. And I love the 22 cent snowman - we used baby carrots for everything - where does one get coal pieces in suburbia?
