After the Olympics
Well, I really didn't think I would finish my Olympics project in time. I was okay with that (unlike the real Olympics, I would still get a sweater at the end, even if it were late). But somehow, I got into the finishing groove, and even the crocheted neckline (which I've never done before) went smoothly and quickly.
I'll get back to Tempting II and Heavenly Stole after I finish the Pinwheel Baby Blanket:
I cast on last night. It's for a friend whose daughter is due in April. The yarn is Knitpicks Wool of the Andes in Mulled Wine, and Filatura di Crosa Zarella Baby in Pink. This pattern is nice and easy after the lace sweater. It's hard to photograph when it's still on the needles, and I'm wondering how I'll be able to tell when it's the diameter I want. I have quite a bit done because I was up till 4:00 this morning with a sick kitty. Mirando's not feeling well, and we're taking him to the vet this afternoon. Geronimo is such a good brother--he keeps checking on Mirando. It's very sweet.
Writing: Revising chapters one and two of the murder mystery.
Reading: The Big Over Easy by Jasper Fforde. I'm not very far yet, due to the finishing marathon yesterday.
Cooking: My husband cooked dinner last night! Penne Arrabbiata with Roasted Peppers. Yum! I'll have the enchilada recipe up tomorrow.
