Plodding along...

Like you, Sarah, I can't say I'm exactly leading the field on my Olympic Knitting.

I started with great enthusiasm on the opening day (didn't you love the costumes?) only to discover that my brain would not process the Leisel Scarf stitch pattern no matter how I tried. So I whinged a bit then tried another stitch pattern in the centre of my poor scarf.

Did I mention I have started this yarn 4 times now??

It and I tottered along till last Thursday when I said to my bestest knitting friend, "What I really wanted was..." and then decided to make it happen. My scarf is now Donna's Olympic Gold Scarf (I hope!!) and I am on the downhill side, having joined in ball 2 of 2 last night while watching Femme Fatale in protest at there being no Olympics on at 10.30pm (my knitting/wind down time)

What a strange movie that was, but quite fascinating...

Anyway, off to get further down the slope before I have to go sleep some more...

Yay, Team Kiwi, we can do it!!

Sometimes you've just got to go where the spirit takes you. It sounds like you made the right choice in changing projects :)

I'm about halfway through Femme Fatale - I got sucked into watching it on Sun but had to get to bed, so I taped it. You're right, it is a fascinating film - seems a bit voyeuristic in parts, but quite intriguing.

Yes, that's a good word for that movie. I wasn't sure how to express it, hence the dots ;-). I surely wouldn't be happy to watch it in company, even my DDs', though one's almost 22 and the other 19.

I amd cheering you on with your socks: I love socks, they are so interesting, but not too slow to finish. Next project, maybe socks for me!! Hmm, but it could also be a little black cardigan for that engineering student ;-S. I did offer.
