Going for Silver, maybe?

Well here are the embossed leaves socks:

I love them.

As for the second pair, well... One sock is done. The other one only has a cuff. I'm pretty sure I'm not going to make it. Damn me for trying to have a life while doing this Olympic thing ;) I'm still going to try to make it, but seeing as I have a pretty busy weekend planned, I doubt it's going to work.

I was going to post a pic of my progress but my batteries died right after I took the embossed leaves socks picture. Batteries are charging right now so I'll be able to take a pic later.

Back to the knitting. Oh yeah, and GO CANADA! Gold medal in men's curling today, yay!

I can finally update the blog! First my computer refused to work and then the blogger site wouldn't let me update. Grrr.

Before I start on my progress, I'd like to congratulate Mr Gibson and Mr Pain, who just won Gold and Silver for Canada in the skeleton competition. GOOD JOB!

Here's sock number one. I'm at the gusset on sock #2. Which means I'm late, since I have another pair of socks to complete before the end of the Olympics. But I'm not too worried since the second pair will be a plain pair, so it should take me less time to complete it.

I hope that all the knitting olympians are doing well. I'll admit something: I miss Mariah! I'm itching to get back to those sleeves. Oh well, I'll get there soon enough and by then I'll have two new pairs of socks to wear :)

Canada : 1

Canada got the gold today, yes!

Just a quick update now that I can. I was computerless for a couple of days so I couldn't say that I modified my Olympic knitting challenge. I'll be making two pairs of socks instead of one. Funny thing is, when I finally was able to get to the computer today, I noticed that Jo also doubled her challenge. Great minds think alike (except her projects are quite more challenging than mines I think) ;)

The first embossed leaves sock is going very well. The pattern is very easy to follow. And it looks absolutely gorgeous.

More later, I gotta run. Good luck to everyone!
