In Closing


I can guarantee that I was bawling this morning. When they do the handover over to the next country and put out that flame I always go to pieces. 

I had some serious knitting mojo going on for the first week. I cast on socks.....

....finished advent sweater Number 6 and finished the body on Number 7.

I really don't want to discuss the ill fated Holm mitten but I had to laugh at this photo. It looks like a demon here doesn't it? I'm scared to pick it up again. I think it's possessed. 

Bye, bye Beijing. It as a great two weeks minus the skating thing. I'm proud of the fact that I've refrained from saying what I thought about that here but if you think for one minute that dramatic outcome was not planned and choreographed well in advance once certain people got caught...I've got a bridge to sell you. 


  1. You did get a lot of knitting done while distracted with the Olympics! I'm sorry that cheating is such a common place thing in high places that no one bothers about it anymore!

  2. I hadn't noticed about the mitten until you pointed out the facial features. Ha!
    It's so sad that no one really seems to care about actual talent anymore.

  3. I agree with your last statement. I could not even watch this year with all the political statements being made. The cheating through many of the events. China never should have been awarded the games in the first place and if Russia was out because of doping, there should not have been an ROC team. Because if you think RUSSIA was not controlling the ROC, I've got a bridge for you. :::wink:::

    I used to love sports. ALL sports. Now the TV rarely gets turned on at all. The media and the internet have ruined it for me.

  4. That's a great output of knitting Love the new socks

  5. It took me a moment to see the devil mitt, but yep! It's a demon! LOL All your other projects look great though. Hope the exorcism on the mitt worked. :) And yes, I agree about the Olympics. I was obsessed for the first time over the first week but the cheating and politics turned me off and I barely watched any of it the last few days.

  6. Oh your mitten is too funny. We watched very little of the Olympics, some of the Hockey games:)

  7. Love those socks; you are such a good matcher-upper! What is you secret? This year I just wasn't inspired to watch the Olympics and now with all the stuff that happened am kind of glad I didn't.
