Things are hotting up here in London, and I don't mean the weather! Olympic fever has gripped the nation (well, according to the BBC news site, which is only talking about the torch and the Games) and I'm getting excited about starting my Olympic knitting. I am not so excited about my commuting over the next few weeks, though I can't see an extra million visitors being so disastrous to London.... time will tell. The first test is getting home tonight, as I'll be on the underground line which leads to the Olympic Park, where the Opening Ceremony is taking place tonight. i expect I might bump into all of those poor MPs who are being told to mix with the masses and use public transport...
Anyway, back to the knitting. Get the flags out! I HAVE FINISHED MADRIGAL. What a journey! It really isn't a difficult knit, but I kept dropping slippery stitches and the yarn's dark navy. Never again! Wednesday I finished that second sleeve and darned in the remaining ends.
Just a good wash and it's ready to wear.
I had a whole evening for something else, and as I have neglected the crochet for a while that's been brought out, though not much done - three full circles and the rest are jsut the firsst round of the circles At least it's a start.
Sorry, both photos taken in dark dark lighting on the mobile.
I shall be watching the Opening Ceriemon, needles at the ready to cast on. I'm really looking forward to it! Roll on 9pm! We'll crack open a bottle of wine and knit (well I will, Mr C will just guzzle the wine much faster than I do). Best start off with a simple project, not the double knit hat!
