I have been doing a bit of knitting on my 'The Big Four' sock. I have almost finished two pattern repeats and will do at least one more and maybe half of another before starting the heel.
The Winter Olympics are somewhat of a non-event in the US. I know there is a 9-hour time change from Eastern Standard Time but NBC really isn't very concerned about televising anything live from what I can tell. At home, I'd be flipping from the French CBC channels to English CBC channels and NBC during the commercials.
