Ravelympics (and, I suppose, the Olympics) kick off Friday at 7:00 PM in my time zone. And I will be out having dinner with friends. I know--where's my dedication? Where's my team spirit? Obviously, I may not be cut out to be a professional "knitlete" (You've heard of poetic license, right? This is blog license--I can make up any words or terms on my knitting blog that I want, provided they have something to do with knitting. This is one of the perks of ignoring reality) as I have no intention of changing plans. But I do promise to cast on the moment we get home.
I am getting ready, though. I have lined up audio books, movies, we have lots of spaghetti sauce in the freezer, and the ingredients for white chocolate martinis are in the refrigerator (which won't really help the knitting but WILL make attempting to knit a sweater in 16 days seem less crazy). Just under 2 days until the kickoff.....maybe I should be doing stretches or some sort of finger lifts????
