Sophie's Sweater

Here is my "Sweetheart Cardigan", pattern by Laura Brown. You can get the free pattern here. I participated in the Knitting Olympics on Team Knitmore if you are on Ravelry. I cast on during the opening ceremony and cast off before the closing ceremony ended. What a fun knit this was. As usual, I had a few problems getting the lace pattern right, but when I used stitch markers and paid attention (instead of watching Apolo, ha ha), it came out fine.

Olympic highlights: Short Track with Apolo Ohno, Lindsay Vonn, Bode Miller, Seth Wescott, seeing so many Canadians medal and hearing the very sing-able Canadian national anthem, Kim Yu-Na-elegance on ice, Joannie Rochette, snowboard cross and ski cross-the Beast! I love to watch figure skating but still can't tell a triple toe loop from a fruit loop.

I also really enjoyed the Minute Maid commercial featuring Scooter the bunny. Look it up on you tube if you missed it. I think I should download that for the next time I feel down in the dumps. I laughed harder every time I saw it. Mostly I push the mute button whenever the commercials come on.

So, now I am feeling a little blah, no Olympics, no knitting. Time to quilt!

What a lovely little sweater, you did a beautiful job on it! I started a little layette last week, for a friend of my son's who is expecting in August. Wish I knew if it was a boy or girl!
