Wow! Look at those smiles! It would be a toss-up, I think, to know if they are smiling because of their medals or because they are done with all that high-pressure knitting. Two knitters reported being questioned by their doctors about sudden spikes in their blood pressure. Knitting is supposed to be relaxing!
The two ladies sitting next to me come regularly to Knit Group from Community Living Meaford. They were our support team, always offering words of encouragement. That earned them the red medals.
Our celebration actually began Wednesday night. Riverside Yarns in Owen Sound hosted a post-Olympic party - a time for show and tell. Not to mention a generous draw for gift certificates. Our own Sharon, wearing her lovely Branching Out Olympic Scarf, was one of the lucky winners.
At the party we saw the Fish Hat from Knitty.com. 'Hello. Who's in there?' Isn't that fun?
On to Survivor and some quiet, relaxed, no-pressure knitting. After starting out so cohesively, the Survivor participants are falling apart. Initially, it seemed their Tribe names gave them a sense of commonality, but it didn't take long for that to disappear. Randy gone, with one vote to Boston Rob. Russ is good at mind games.
