The swim meet is over. I survived.

And I managed to place in everything I swam in.

Of course, places were counted to 8th place. But I have nothing lower than 6th. In fact, I have one of each to 6th place. My individual events took 3rd and 4th. The other four are from relays. For the most part, I had fun. I'm still tired, and a little sore, but hey, I'll do it again.

As for knitting, less took place than I expected. All childcare plans, and backup plans, fell through, so I was Mommy as well as athlete. And that was tough.


But the heels are turned, and Istarted up the ankle. And then I got bored with stockinette, and started wondering what this self-patternewing yarn would look like in a pattern, something simple, like feather and fan. It doesn't show up all that well; I'll try again Wednesday. But I think it's looking pretty neat. Even the little green spots look interesting.

And I attracted a little attention, even from teammates. Some said I wouldn't have time to knit, as they sat and worked their crossword puzzles.

And so begins another week. I'm counting them down until I go visit friends in Baltimore and go to Maryland Sheep and Wool. It's getting closer...

Cute socks! Thanks for the information on the spinning wheels. I'm definitely going to have the smaller one fixed up to keep around for a bit. If I decide to learn to spin once it gets here....so be it! Did you find it hard to teach yourself?
