TBK Seal of Approval

This is what happens when I leave Vivian unattended...

Needless to say, I think The Big Kitty approves.

Hi, Viv!

Now that the Olympics are over, I now return to my regularly scheduled knitting.  

Here's how Vivian is doing these days.  

And I made it to row 76!  

There's a lot of choose-your-own-adventure sizing going on here, so I certainly hope it comes out well.  A curvy girl's gotta do what a curvy girl's gotta do, you know.

Olympic Socks

That's right.  I did it.  17 days, 2 new techniques, a new pair of socks!  The 2 at a time sock thing is pretty nifty, because it does eliminate the dreaded second sock syndrome, but I did miss my DPNs from time to time.  And as I said in a previous post, initially I loathed the afterthought heel for making me pick up so many freaking stitches, but it does look cool.  For some reason, the top of these socks came out longer than the bottom, but that just makes them look good from the top.  All in all, I'm happy with them.
