News from the Olympic Knitting Front

OK, first things first. Here's the state of the Olympic project.

I have to report that I'm having some equipment issues. Remember the needle separation I had on day one? Well, it's happened twice more (once on each needle end). I must twist my needles in some funky way whilst knitting. It could be all that twisting around I do picking up stitches. Who knows? I'm not ready to throw in the towel on this Boye set yet, but it's getting closer. (This same problem is why I don't use the Denise set I bought a few years back too.) I think I'm just not cut out for those needle sets.

And I'm sick. Not so bad that I'll have to withdraw from the Olympics, but I think I'm going to miss my knitting workout tonight. I woke up with a bit of a scratchy throat this morning, and it's been progressing all day into a full blown cough/chest/throat thing. I'm headachey and have chills. I think I'm just going to go to sleep early. Great thing for Valentine's Day. Bleah. We're taking a raincheck on celebrations. (Although if things progress as they are I stand to lose my voice in a day or two. Dave may consider that a great Valentine's gift.)

Oh I love the scarf! I have to do an entrelac project this year. My daughter has the same malady you do... same symptoms... and she's had it for a few weeks. I hope yours doesn't last that long!

I hope you feel better soon! One of my knitting friends has the flu bug and she says it is awful. :(
