Crafty couch potatoes?!?

What a jerk! No, no, tell us what you really think JENINNE LEE-ST. JOHN. That's not offensive at all. As a knitter in my twenties, I have to put up with jibes about little old ladies... but couch potato? Thanks. ALOT. I'm not the only one who feels this way... I was tipped off by Knitorious.

Moving on... the knitting met with some frustration this weekend. I'm almost done the front of my Viking Turid, or so I thought. When I matched the front and the back, the armholes are about 2 inches off and do not begin in the same place. Argh. So now one needs to be ripped. But which one? For now, the two pieces are sitting in my knitting basket while I work on something else... namely the sleeve for the MIL cardigan, which is infinitely easier at this point... and glare at my Viking Turid. So frustrating. This is why I didn't sign up for the knitting olympics.

Anyway... how great is the Canadian women's hockey team? I loved watching the game against Sweden. Cried during the medal ceremony when they played O Canada and sang along in my head. Definitely the best women's team ever.
