Olympic knitting, day ?

Eight days left.
I've gone from this:

To this:

Helllllllooooo, sleeve island!

This is my first time using knitpicks' Peruvian wool, and I've got to say that I may end up liking it ever so slightly better than the Elann brand. I've used Elann's a lot, and this yarn in the initial handling is slightly smoother. I can see I'll have to do a side-by-side comparision.

Counting down to the knitting Olympics

Wow! I just looked at the page for our little Olympic tribute, and I'm on it. Hello, fellow competitors. (And hello to my "Anonymoused" visitor.)

While the needle for my challenge-knit has arrived from Elann, the yarn has not. I knew it was risky ordering it from knitpicks, but as this will be a gift, I let the giftee choose the color.

My dreaming brain is apparently still set on "hallucinate." I've started to write the dreams down; I find them very interesting...maybe they'll help me write something that others would find interesting too.

No pictures today--though I did finish the painting. I think. I'll have to let it dry and then decide.

Hello sockapalooozers!

The yarn was bought today!

And I've started oil painting classes.
