Olympic Closing Ceremony

I came, I knitted, I completed! Yes, I finished my Olympic Knitting project before the closing ceremony Sunday night. Below is a picture of the dress I knitted for my four year old Granddaughter. It is the wrap dress from Barefoot Knits, by Christine Schwender and Paula Heist. I knitted it in Rowan's DK cotton. I can tell you I really enjoyed doing a project like this. Knowing that there were over 4,000 other around the world working diligently on their projects really motivated me.

Good job to all who participated. As well as the satisfaction of participation we got this wonderful medal for our efforts:

Today was a weight training day at the gym. My trainer really pushed me and I feel it this afternoon.

FORTUNATELY, this came out today and my Costco had it.

Take a peak at the movie

This afternoon will be spent working on my Decapo and watching P&P. How decadent!!!!

My First Hello

Today I begin my blogging journey. First I want to explain my blog name. I have two hobbies that are very important to me, bicycling and knitting. Needless to say I am unable to do both at the same time so I have to balance my time.

I was encouraged to begin blogging by my triathlete daughter and here is a link to her blog:


One of my current projects on my needles is the Hanne Falkenberg kit Decapo. I will post a progress picture in the next few days. I say current projects because like most knitters I have several.

For my cycling experience today I rode slightly over 22 miles. The weather here is ideal for riding.
