Bought not enough yarn. Not my fault exactly... I bought the sole ball of a pretty yarn, and even though it didn't look like enough I decided to try something lacy and see if I could stretch it into a scarf. The answer to that question is no, I cannot. I'm all out of yarn and it is a mere 2 feet long, so I don't know what to do with it now.

I'm going to try asking around on Ravelry then I'm outta ideas. If anyone happens to find a lone ball of Berroco Zodiac in "Libra" (rainbow and black) I'd be delighted to buy it off you so I can finish this project. It's discontinued, so my hopes are not high. Until I find more I might as well just hibernate it. I'll give it a year before I frog it and try to figure out what else I might do with it.

This was one of my Ravelympic projects, but as I cannot possibly finish it I untagged it and won't worry about it. If I'd had the yarn I might have been able to finish. As I do not and don't seem to have an easy way to obtain more I'm going to chalk it up to "equipment failure" and disqualify it.

So what did I manage to finish in Ravelympics? As discussed in the last post, I finished a sweater for Georgia and a set of booties and posted the pattern for the booties online. I started a maple leaf purse, but didn't manage to get it done as I got distracted by the booties and the scarf that I cannot finish. I decided not to tag that either as I only started on Saturday night and didn't honestly think I could finish it, I just wanted to start on something new and patriotic so I'd have something Canadian to work on during the hockey finals.

I watched most of the game, but when it went into overtime and it was almost dinner I wandered off to have a shower. They won while I was out of the room. I came back in time to see the medal ceremony. Interestingly, while the goal that tied it up was replayed here a zillion times, they only showed the winning goal once. That's shitty American coverage for ya.

My favorite sport to watch this year was definitely the speed skating relay. I'm not really that big a fan of speed skating, but the relay has just enough chaos that it looks a bit like derby and gets the blood pumping. Didn't hurt that we won it. I was also a big fan of the snowboard-cross. I missed the ski-cross, but will make an effort to watch it next time around. Figure skating kind of bored me, but we had it on most nights just to listen to the music in the background.

This morning Georgia and I went to the library to pick up a book I had on hold. I put her on my coat on the floor and she lay there making happy "pterodactyl baby" noises. I thought she was going to get us kicked out but people were remarkably tolerant of her happy screeches.
