I have decided to play in the Knitting Olympics. (Hence the new button in the sidebar.) I had been thinking of trying to knit a sweater, since I could really use another sweater, and I could just rip out the inch I’ve got on Klaralund and call it swatching. And then I remembered that the Olympics are right smack in the middle of February, which is when I’m supposed to have a thesis committee meeting. So I’ll be knitting a pair of socks with my Spirit Trail yarn from Rhinebeck. They’ll be nice and cheery, and hopefully relaxing. I’m hoping they’ll be a good way to de-stress. Or at least transfer the stress away from the presentation… And the deadline might help with actually finishing a whole pair of socks.
