My WIP Wrestling will be ready to show on Friday as a FO. I feel it was a bit like cheating as there was not a huge amount to do on it, but it acted as a nice gentle warm up.
I have made a start on my big challenges. If I do three squares a day for ten of the days of the Games I will manage my blanket target, here are the first three (the ones at the top)
I have made a start on my spinning. I decided to go with my ongoing sweater project. The plaited braid is my 100g challenge, if I can get the extra 25g done too that will be a bonus.
The reason this is my big challenge is because it needs to match this.
And super fine spinning takes me a long time. Yesterdays spinning did not go well, I made a start but kept breaking the single. I put it down before I got too cross.
Actual Olympics wise I watched the very end of the opening ceremony as we were driving during most of it. From what I have heard it sounds like I missed the best bits so might have to look it up in i player.
I have seen a few bits of events- swimming, gymnastics and basketball; but I am not good at watching for too long. Highlights are more my sort of thing.
Figured it would be easier to reply to Kathryn here- we are not going to any of the events. Tickets were not easy to get as they were done in a random draw/lottery style so the chances of getting a sport that interests you was low. That combined with the mad expense of travelling/eating/staying in London during the Olympics put us off.
