Let's do this.

I'm out of excuses, so I think I'll actually show up to knitting again.

I'm excited to see everyone's olympic projects -- I'm maybe behind a little.

Man Down

I think I am our first olympic casualty.

I sat on a DPN. It went an inch into my thigh. Nicholas had to pull it out because it was too deep for me to do. Then the nice doctor at Allina Shoreview irrigated my wound. So it's clean now, but the cleaning solution is oozing out of my thigh.

In a word, gross.

Amber: This is the site I was telling you about. Even increase calculator. There are all kinds of nifty calculators there.

advice needed!

knitters! i hope you are doing well and staying safe from this perilous weather of late. i HOPE to be in shape to attend knitting this tuesday, because i miss you all dreadfully. of course, i will see most of you at opening ceremonies for knitting olympics, rite? rite???

speaking of knitting olympics, i have decided on a project. i'm madly in love with the knit picks kettle dyed stroll, and have decided to turn my stash into a collection of garter-stitch shawls. this one just came out, i love it, it must be mine! this presents a few choices.

the yardage for the medium is about 400 yards. my skein of stroll is 462. no problem! except, i'd prefer to make the large. yardage needed: 500 yards? my choices are these:

a) knit the medium
b) knit the large at a smaller gauge
c) order two skeins of the same color and hope they arrive in time for opening ceremonies
d) knit the border in another color entirely ew no

my stash includes the eggplant and bordeaux; i am wondering if it would be nice in goldenrod which is why i'm considering placing another order anyway. decisions, decisions. what do you think?
