The mittens will not get finished by Friday. This is curling mitten number one.
No problem - except - Fred and I have decided to head to Montreal to watch the Scotties. That is the Canadian Women's Curling Championships for those of you that don't speak curling. We leave today. Knitting on vacation is something I always do but this time, I am only taking one project. My Olympic Knitting. I have the yarn, the pattern and the needles all packed. I have a day and a bit to do my gauge swatch and make sure I understand the lace pattern. By Friday, I need to be ready to cast on.
While it would be a perfect combo to knit curling mittens while watching curling championships, a knitter has to prioritize. Sochi, here I come.
