Fun with lace

For my next project I decided I would make a lace scarf with the skein of GGH SoftKid Mohair that I got for Christmas. This has been the perfect project to work on while watching the Olympics. Not that I'm participating in the Knitting Olympics, but it is a nice, quick project to do between feeding sessions.

And speaking of Olympics, has anyone else noticed that nearly every athlete has overcome some sort of adversity like a near-crippling accident or the recent death of a beloved relative? My husband and I have a theory that the media is behind all of the tragedy and so they will have some heart-wrenching story to talk about. You can almost imagine specially trained Olympic Adversity Specialists sneaking around in the months before the games wreaking havoc. Or maybe my husband and I are just evil...

Also of note, my LYS (Northampton Wools) is currently having a 20% off winter wool sale so I went yesterday and got 3 skeins Plymouth Encore, a superwash acrylic/wool blend in blue.


Can you guess who might be getting another sweater?

When Owen is 80 years old, he will look exactly like that photo.
