Ravelympics Update- Day ? (heck I don't know)

What I do know is that I've been a knitting machine, well...... here and there anyway. I'm probably about half way done now. I don't even know how much time I have left really but I'm going to try to get it done before the end.
Scarf's are tough. Knitting a scarf takes extended fortitude and perserverance. Knitting a scarf can be SO BORING! Add the lace bit in there and that equals my personal challenge. But hey! Row 11 isn't killing me as bad anymore! As long as I mute the TV when doing it I'm pretty much okay with it now. We've made our peace.

Well, Team USA is having it's ups and downs in the Olympics but I guess that keeps it exciting. I've still been enjoying watching what I can and tonight I think Michael goes for Gold #6. I'll be watching that for sure!

Right now I'm waiting for the gal to come by my house to do a quick medical check for my life insurance. I don't know why I'm nervous, maybe it's the whole blood work thing. As I get older my veins are getting finicky. I just wish it was over with!!! It should only take about 15 minutes, but what would I do if I had nothing to complain about?

Looks like you're plugging right along! I know you can do it!!! I'm loving the color!

Did you see the all around gymnastics final? I stayed up so late to watch that and ended up getting less than 3 hours of sleep last night.

And you're right...scarves are really really boring. Which is why the scarf that never ends has been sitting in my knitting basket for three whole years!

I have to have a scarf-break- up project to work on inbetween, to break up the monotony.

It is looking great. You'll finish in penty of time!

Thanks Dawn!! You don't know how tempted I am to overnight it to you to finish for me! You're a lace wizard!!! Man, did I need that cheering too! LOL!!

How Funny Anna! I thought of you when I wrote that post! I love scarves, but knitting them...not so much! LOL! Oh Gosh Yes! I've been staying up way too late too!! I'm so messed up! But I record some of the events for Rich since he has to go to work in the morning! Sometimes East Coast time really stinks! Did you know China has one time zone?? For that HUGE country??? Crazy!

I Know Jeanne! I finished a simple sock I'd been working on in between the scarf and it's really saved my sanity! I have to cast another one on to make it to the finish line with this scarf! How is yours coming????
