Coming in just so announce a few knitting things.
1. Finished my squares for Trina’s Log Cabin baby blanket being knit with Maaike. Now I have a gazillion ends to weave in, and then I’ll crochet the squares together, then together we will knit a border. The baby is due in 2 weeks so I think we’ll be able to do it in time, if not then she’ll get it after the baby is born.
2. We had a mini Knitting Olympics at guild Tuesday night. We could either knit a 41 sts x 30 rows solid red or solid white rectangle, or one the same size but using intarsia to knit it into a Canadian flag, complete with maple leaf and a red stripe on either side. I went for the flag, and was the first to finish, ends woven in and all. CO to BO in 1hr 10 min. The Olympics haven’t even begun and I’m already a gold medalist!

I think I saw on facebook that the Csection is scheduled for Feb 23rd. Is she having a girl or boy? Can’t wait to see pics of the finished blanket!

Congrats on the Gold — it couldn’t have gone to a better person. I feel honoured to have won the Silver to your Gold.
I”ll try to get pictures from Gillian for you to post (since I obviously suck at posting).

Ugh, I hate weaving in the ends. Good luck finishing!
Congrats! Sounds like you are Olympic material!
