Ravelympics Begins!

I am grateful that Blogger heard my crankiness and has now added a light gray to the background where you do all the workings of your blog. SO much more readable. Thanks Blogger.  However, I must point out that I am NOT RESPONSIBLE for any of the ADVERTISEMENTS that you see.  I knew eventually Blogger would need to generate money somehow.  Maybe I can get crafting ads, you think?

Again, it is the Ravelympics and I of course will be participating.  My plans include completing the crocheted ladybug afghan, making a toy and a tea cozy.  Not huge things, but getting that afghan done finally will be PROGRESS!! I had planned to include a pair of socks in there somewhere, but couldn't find the yarn - it's in a box safe from the cat, but alas, I don't know which box.

Why join one thing when you can do two? I am also participating in the crochetville.org celebration by working on the afghan.

All that is left for the afghan is the sewing and final rounds. But, as we all know, finishing takes a long time.  Therefore, I have several audiobooks to listen to while doing so. What? Not watching the Olympics? Can't.  140 countries can stream the Olympics for free, but not the US. We gotta pay.  I'm not going to.  I don't have an antennae hookup for the TV that I use to work on my projects, so I'm out of luck. I hope that eventually, I will be able to see the Opening Ceremonies on YouTube or something.  If I can remember how to change my IP address, I can confuse my computer enough to watch volleyball from British Television.

I haven't posted because I haven't been doing any crafting. My hands are finally not giving me too much trouble and I just started sewing a project yesterday. It's a repeat of the Triple Irish Chain and it will be once again in white and scraps.

That's about it. Progress photos in a day or so! Oh, and btw, buying an Itouch can seriously cut into your knitting/quilting/crocheting time.  You get sucked into a game and boom, you've run out of time.
