Olympic Review

1. I knit 23 rows of Gail during the opening ceremony last night.

2. The ceremony was AMAZING! I loved all the performances and special effects.

3. I have already saved a copy of the pattern for the US Team's Moose Hat.

4. I have also saved a copy of Team Canada's mittens. But, I think I want the real thing. I'm bummed because I'll be 20 minutes away from Niagara Falls, Canada during the Olympics, but lack a passport. GRRRR! I've spent a lot of time in Canada, and those Maple Leaf mittens just speak to me!

5. Baby Girl is fussing, because she's the only person not sitting on the couch right now.

yeah, made me proud to be a Canadian tonight. That was one beautiful opening ceremony. Made it hard to get a lot of knitting done. And I loved the U.S. team's hats -- very cool. Funny how one's eye is always drawn to the knitwear. Congrats on your first 23 rows. You are off to a great start!

I love that Gail you're knitting.

I missed the ceremony. I'll have to watch it today. I had a girls night out to see Valentine's Day. It was worth putting my ravelympics knitting on hold for a few hours.

I love the hat. Thanks for linking that. I think I must knit one.

Enjoy your family this weekend.

Can't wait to see your Gail shawl. It's in my queue on Ravelry, but so are a million other things.
Btw, I hope you'll seriously consider being a team captain for DRT in August. You'd do a great job. Besides, I could end up on any ol' body's team, and that would be just awful.
