under pressure

What a week! Here it is Saturday afternoon, I've just returned from a two-day conference, and other than a little progress at Stitch & Bitch Wednesday, I've done absolutely no knitting this week at all! UGH! I'm glad the weekend is finally starting for me.

The big happy spot of my week was receiving a wonderful and insanely bright Valentine prize in the mail from Miss Bugheart. It's a book cover! With a frog on it!

The front... the back... and the super-cool lost knits label.

I love it I love it I love it! And, you can get these Lost Knits labels from Bugheart herself. The idea is sort of like a bicycle registry or a pet microchip. She will keep a record of who gets labels from her, and if anyone ever loses a special home-made object, the finder just emails Lost Knits and the item can be safely returned! Isn't that cool????

Any rate, I'm looking forward to making some more progress on my Olympic sweater during the remainder of this weekend. I had thought for a while that I actually picked a project that wasn't quite challenging enough for this time period, but considering my actual work schedule right now, I'd say this is just right - it's not going to be easy to get it done by next Sunday.

Day 6, and Day 7, and Day 8 and Day 9.

I think we should get some of those male Olympic figure skaters knitting. It might help them relax a little bit and handle the pressure better. What's with those guys, anyway? I want to see skating, not ass-over-teakettle falls! They are so easily psyched out. I think knitting could really help them.


  1. i hope that you don't mind it is insanely bright... at least you will be able to find in on a desk with government documents...
    your sweater looks great!
    you can finish it!
    as what's with male skater's storming off when they see their scores... they certainly need to knit and calm the @&!*& down.

  2. Wonderful book cover! I have now discovered yet another great new blogger to read! B/c 190 feeds isn't enough for a girl who should be doing her schoolwork.

  3. You can do it! You'll finish your Olympic knitting! I know you won't cave under the pressure! :-)
