I think I should be competing in the Olympic category of Finishing a Knitted Item for the Benefit of a Loved One Although It's Completely No Fun to Knit. There is fun in watching the Olympics over the top of my knitting, though. How 'bout those crazy moguls skiers??
Moving on, we have my Around the Corner Scarf, started in November and not really worked on since December...this one's really fun to watch as it grows, but I am not feeling the love for the way I have to pay attention every second to the pattern, which is all short rows and loopy bits. I know it will be worth it, in the end, but my short knitting attention span in the winter has relegated this one to the bottom of the "Basket O' Knits In Progress."
Today is Shrove Tuesday, Mardi Gras, Pancake Tuesday. We celebrated by eating LOTS of pancakes for supper at our friends' tonight, and it was lovely. Now I am in a bit of a carb coma, but mmmmmm. Lovely American-style puffy pancakes, syrup and bacon. Lily went with more British-style crepes with lemon and sugar, and ate four. Quite a meal for such a small peanut!
