Ten on Tuesday…

…the one with all the…can’t you see I’m knitting?

Intent Observation
Jazzy – keeping an eye on the neighbors.  ;o)

There isn’t an official topic (again) this week, so I’m coming up with my own topic (Carole and our band of rebels have a topic but since I’m knitting for the Olympics and that’s kind of what’s on my mind right now, I’m going to go with what I’m obsessing about in the interest of not taxing my brain this week). So, without any further ado:

10 Things to Say to Your Family While Knitting for the Olympics (the predecessor of this post is here, btw. I went through this once before, remember? Don’t ask me why I decided to do this a second time.  I think, like childbirth, the memory of the pain lessons after the passage of time.  It’s either that or I’ve completely lost my mind.  shut. up. ;op ).

1. Hi. Why are you staring at me?

2. No, I can’t cook you dinner. Here’s twenty bucks for a pizza.

3. No, I don’t care what you get on the pizza.

4. No, REALLY. I don’t care! KNITTING here!

5. Why is Mommy crying?  Because she loves knitting.  A lot.

6.  YES, we are watching ice skating.  No, I don’t care if you like it.

7. Are you going to fast forward through these commercials or am I going to stab you with a double point?


9.  Stop whimpering, I didn’t yell *that* loudly.

10.  This will all be over on Monday.  (Yes, this Monday.)

So tell me, how is your Olympic knitting coming along?  ;o)

  1. You crack me up. My Olympic knitting is coming along, but if I were trying to make the knitting quarterfinals, I don’t think it would happen. Still, I’m just happy to be at the Olympics…wait…

  2. These are great! I’m not officially doing olympic knitting, but am knitting. My favorite is when I’m trying to count and my dear husband starts doing the math to calculate the time differences between the skiers….

    See, that’s exactly why I’m not participating this year. I did that to my family last time, and I think they’re still scarred.

  4. hahahahahaha Yeah..it sounds like my house on a non-olympic week. I’m glad I never really got signed up on any team and no one is counting on my to finish my “official” project…because it ain’t happening. Do I get credit for starting and finishing a project that I hadn’t planned to? Kinda like doing a pairs program in the middle of ice dancing? No? Well…I didn’t think so. Oh well. Maybe in 2014.

  5. Well, I was going great guns on a sweater — but the 1st sleeve is coming out all wrong. 4 inches too long! That’s just crazy. I know I’m short, but not THAT short. Plus the sleeve cap shaping is so bizarre…I’ll have to figure something else out, which is not a problem, but for the Olympics I just wanted to bliindly follow a pattern for once!

  6. Yes, but you didn’t say HOW your Olympic knitting is going! Next year, stock frozen pizzas in the house and make sure everyone else knows how to bake them.
