Post-Olympic Debriefing

Nope. I'm not done. In fact, I did not knit a stitch on Sunday, the final day. It was Jodie's birthday and I spent it with her.

Rogue: Well, I'm at row 24-25ish on the Bloody Hood of Doom. The rows are short...but I have to pay attention virtually every row for cables and WS/RS issues and it is exhausting. Then I peeked ahead at some of the other Roguers...and saw the grafting of the cables. I grew faint of heart right then and there. I've bookmarked a tutorial on grafting the hood, and when I get to that point I will wait until the house is quiet and sit at the computer and graft it step by step. Then it will be on to the sleeves and finishing. Did I "win" Gold? Nope, but I'm very pleased with my progress nonetheless.

Lots of movie watching this weekend...The newest Wallace & Grommit, The Man, Desert Hearts, King Arthur, and O Brother Wherefore Art Thou. The music of the latter was the music of my childhood...my mother played bluegrass/gospel/country incessantly. Sometimes I just can not listen to it...but I truly enjoyed it in the movie.

Wallace&Grommit...eh, I love 'em, but this was not my favorite.

The Man - Not a "great work" but silly and made me laugh a lot.

Desert Hearts - This is an old lesbian favorite that I had never seen. Again, Eh...it was okay. Some lesbian culture icons just don't "do it" for me...like, uh, a lot of the Indigo Girls stuff...Ani DiFranco...eh. I can take it or leave it.

King Arthur - Jodie and I are both huge fans of all things King Arthur/LOTR/fantasy type stuff. This was a very different take on the Arthurian legend. Violent and bloody, but good.

O Brother - Funny...but the music really did it for me.

Oh Brother was one of those movies that as I was watching it in the theater, I was already figuring out where I could stop on the way home to get the soundtrack. :)

Spending a birthday with someone near and dear seems much more important than finishing a project - and it sounds like you really got an amazing amount done on Rogue over these past 16 days. I was too scared to do Rogue for my Knitting Olympics project, so really, I continue to be amazed that you did so.

Great Olympian effort - very impressive with the progress you did make - amazing really. I would have never attempted Rogue in 16 day - my goodness.

I want to see it done though, so don't give up.

Congrats on gettgin so much accomplished on your rogue in such a short time. I couldn't get my Eris done that fast.. so I salute you for what you did get done.

Sounds like a nice weekend with movies and birthday hijinks.

I can't wait to see that sweater done.. let us know more when you finish the hood.
