Lagging Behind in the Qualifying Heats

Well, I have (finally!) finished charity block #1. I'd better start knitting faster if I expect to meet my goal of 12. I, too, am feeling that I may have bitten off slightly more than I can chew here (sometimes I forget that I have a life other than knitting to deal with). But I will take inspiration from the many Olympic heroes who didn't give up and came back to win it in the end! :)

I hope you all enjoy my ridiculously close up picture there. We just got a digital camera and I'm infatuated with the macro function. And, oddly enough, the block actually looks a lot better this close.

Alright Geo, I want in! I will be knitting an alpaca/wool/merino blend earflap hat with hot pink trim, tassels, and pom-pom. It is called the Frosted Cupcake, and is a piece for a customer of pH - project H Knits, where you can get Headwear In Every Flavor.

I shall follow the rules of the competition, and I will be proud to represent Deseret from VT! East Coast in the house!

Amy: If it looks good in macro (and it does), it'll look good in an afghan.

Digital cameras are a close second to kntting needles on my personal list of Tools That Bring Us Joy.

Heidi, Heidi, Heidi! Alright, you're here and you're in! You belong with us, babe. No, change that--you belong TO us! I'll go set you up right away, links and all. I can't wait to see Frosted Cupcake and get caught up with you.

A bit of history for all of you: Heidi was the original knit night mama here in the heart of our lovely Deseret, back in the S&B days. She ditched us for Vermont, but that's understandable.
