It’s done! It’s done.
I may be developing a case of carpal tunnel syndrome<sigh>, but the socks are finished. Since I was operating on NBC Time, I am happy to report that all stitching was finished and the socks were off the needles before NBC showed the flame going out. (I was actually working in the very last end, but I consider that finished. Anyone saying different will not be heard!)
Pictures will be posted ... eventually. Right now I’m tired and will be taking myself to bed shortly and don’t feel much like pulling the camera out and all that.
I’m always sad when the Olympics are over. It’s odd, since I’m really not all that much of a sports person – I heard that snort from some of you! – but I love the pageant and ceremony and idealism of the Olympics. And since I love cold weather, the Winter Olympics are my favorite. So it’s a sad time, but I’m happy I participated, in my old, non-sportsperson way, and I really appreciate that The Yarn Harlot got this started. What a wonderful idea it was! (And let’s all cross our fingers that she got her project done. The most recent blogs didn’t leave a lot of hope in that area.)
So, thanks to the athletes and to the leaders of our various Knitting Olympic teams and to our families and friends who encouraged and/or aided and abetted. Let’s all get a good night’s sleep now and come out knitting in the morning!
