So The Gaming One doesn't like the Cycling Aran I wanted to make for him...He wants a plain cardigan "You know like the one Mr. Roger's used to wear??!! But with buttons instead of a zipper and can you make it a v-neck??" He is such a sentimental, just gotta love him! So...he is gonna have to wait for that...I am sure his Mom has some easy, plain pattern from one of her knitting books from the 70's that will make him happy and remind him of the happy days of his youth spent with his good friend Fred....it will probably bore me to tears, but I guess it is not about me...
Instead I am going to make something for myself (that he will also enjoy I think)
Lolita Legs from Knitty is a hot knit that I think I may realistically be able to finish. Since I have never knit socks, nor knit with elastic yarn I think these will be a suitable challenge plus the lace pattern will challenge my ability to knit, drink and watch tv at the same time. Besides I think I would really had about as much chance finishing the Cycling Aran in 16 days as I would actually winning a medal in the real Olympics (unless drinking Merlot is now an Olympic sport, then I just might have a chance!)
