I haven't participated in any Olympic knitting in the truest sense this year. Mo gave me a bunch of this yarn during her de-stashing so I wanted to use it for a lovely, cabled Aran sweater.
I'm omitting the collar and pockets and making the ribbing on the bottom and cuffs a bit shorter. I'm also doing a v-neck and will do a continuous button/buttonhole band all the way around the fronts and neck as I did with my Must Have Cardigan. I picked this pattern it for the raglan sleeves
I doubt I will complete it during the span of the Olympics but I have been knitting on it whenever I've been sitting and watching the events. It will also serve as my 2012 sweater.
All the shots of London and the countryside make me yearn to return to the UK. I wish we had enough disposable income that we could send Scooter there for a holiday. He is such a history buff, he'd really enjoy being there. Instead, we're sending him off to university. Hopefully Skip and I can find a nifty tour of England and Scotland for ourselves sometime in the not-to-distant future.
In the meantime I need to finish painting the trim and doors in my lovely new bathroom. I just don't have the inclination to paint today. Mañana.
