The Unofficial Team Pinot

... for everyone who doesn't drink any f#$%ing merlot. I'm enjoying my Olympics, both knitting and athletic. Yesterday, I watched downhill skiing whilst knitting away on Backyard Leaves. This morning, as giant snowflakes began to fall, I cast on for what will forever be my Zen Olympic mittens. From Lapland.

I heart Sideways, too. The mittens, Pinot or Merlot notwithstanding, look scrumptious.

A couple of weeks ago I made the "mistake" of ordering a glass of merlot at a restaurant. Immediately, I was told by someone else sitting at the table that I really should order something more sophisticated. My reply was F#$% sophistication! Your mittens look lovely

Your Zen Olympic mittens are GORGEOUS!! Such awesome progress, too. I've yet to see Sideways, but so many people have told me that it needs to be the first must-see on my Blockbuster list. ;-) Take care, Laura! :-)

Third "heart" for Sideways! I've only seen it once (in the theater), so I think it's time for a re-viewing. Beautiful colorwork so far, Lo!

Have you gotten the new IK yet? Bleah. I'm underwhelmed.

Gorgeous start!

I'm not in the knitting Olympics, either. Too much pressure.

Those mittens come along soooo beautiful!
I really enjoyed my (one, two, three?) glass(es) of Merlot yesterday. F#$% shameful - I still haven't seen Sideways!
