Weekend WIP

The Olympics have begun! So excited. I watched part of the opening ceremony on Friday but a work friend inconveniently had a birthday party at a Mexican restaurant so I had to go out and drink lots of tequila, oh, the humanity.

I got this on the needles on Saturday afternoon and worked on it all yesterday while watching the board slopestyle and bits and pieces from the women's moguls.


It is the Swivel pullover from the last issue of Interweave, knitted in blue faced Leicester by Laal Bear that I bought at last April's Wonderwool. Lovely yarn, and a great colour - it's one from the naturals range. I like how the cable is coming out in it - nice and crisp. My only concern is that it's not going very quickly. Some sweaters just seem to fly off the needles, don't they? This doesn't feel like one of them. I am pretty tired though and spent lots of time yesterday dozing, and this evening. The end of term is catching up with me. Hopefully I will be able to pick up the pace a bit.

Here's one of my favourite Sochi moments so far - an Indian luger who fell off, knocked himself out, rolled back onto his luge and finished unconscious. Brilliant. I also very much enjoyed Jenny Jones winning bronze yesterday and the men's moguls was good today. Can't wait for the ski slopestyle and the board across. TBH I'm enjoying all of it. Poor Mr Z.
