me, Mavis

I knit. I garden. I co-manage an eclectic shop. I sometimes work in real estate. I sometimes swing a hammer. I always volunteer in my community. I live in an old house with my nice family of one husband and three beastly cats. I have great friends. These are the things that matter to me, Mavis.

Who would believe it? me, Mavis an Olympic Athlete!

The Thrill of Victory, The Agony of Defeat -- or maybe de Feet, as so many other contestants are knitting socks. Yes, Dear Reader, we are talking about the Knitting Olympics designed and choreographed by the Yarn Harlot. I have joined Team Cat Bed (see my new button in the sidebar), under the intense coersion -- um, I mean, Careful Coaching of Knit'nat. Ya'll know that my poor unappreciated Beasts need hand-knitted Cat Beds, right? So, there you go ... that's my Olympic Event ... knitting at least 2 beds between the time the Opening Flame is lit nd when it goes out -- 16 days. Since I can't seem to get away from my computer long enough to knit NOW, I'm not sure how the added pressure of The Olympics is going to help ... But Knit'nat has a way about her.

In other news, looky what I ordered yesterday:

A beautiful wooden swft and ball winder, courtesy of my MIL and FIL who sent me a nice check for Christmas. I have a batch of organic cotton waiting in the wings, ready to try these babies out. Of course, since the shipping charge was already being paid, AND I had $5 or so left over, I put in a few $$ of my own and added on a pattern leaflet and some of that new Touche! I'll post a pic when it arrives.
