She shoots-she scores!

Gold!I bound off the last stitch of the body of Forecast a few minutes after the Olympic flag was handed over to my fabulous city's mayor for the 2010 games (!!), during the live broadcast of the Closing Ceremonies, around a quarter to 1 PST. There was a hairy bit there, when I realized I needed to wind up a new ball of yarn a mere four rows from finish, but I did it. Gold!

This photo is crap; I'll take better ones as I progress toward finishing the rest of the sweater.

Things I learned:

  • Cabling
  • Bobbling
  • If I prioritize it, I can get a lot of knitting done in a short time
  • I really do prefer knitting to purling

A secret I kept from all the internets: I gave up caffeine in the last week. Bad timing? Possibly. But since I was into making commitments, I figured why not go for broke. I've been increasingly unhappy that I feel so foggy-headed in the morning until I have my fix. It's a silly thing to subject myself to. So no more morning cup for me. I'm a little sluggish, but not very cranky. Really, I miss the flavour. I love me good coffee. Yes I do. And decaf is crap in comparison. I'm holding out hope that in the next week I'll start to feel fabulous in the morning. If I don't, it'll be tough to keep myself from the hot, full-bodied goodness of my favourite dark roast…
