Fingerless glove

looking for what's missing... I'm a knitting, spinning, mother of teenagers with a big dog, a small cat, minus the lovely rabbit Meliflua.

Right now I'm listening to "An Irish Country Village" by Patrick Taylor, reading "Lots of Candles, Plenty of Cake" by Anna Quindlen and knitting Wisconsin Wintersocks. And casting off the lace shawl I've been working on since I last posted.

Curling: It's Like Something To Knit To

I admit it; curling is my favorite Winter Olympic sport. It has the just right amount of tension -- more in common with bowling than NASCAR. The announcer uses a calm, measured voice. The athletes have solemn grace, if not heart-stopping physiques. There is very little chance I will witness a compound fracture, blood or any other medical emergency. It is unlikely anyone will splat in that way that makes the entire crowd gasp as one.

When curling came on today, my dear son said, "It's like something to knit to." No wonder I like curling.
