Here we are 4 days to the end of the Tour de France. 4 days to the end of the KAL. I have not finished my sweater but I didn’t really expect to. I know I’m a slow knitter and that is OK. I got about 8 inches done on my sweater, including that very pretty but kind of tiresome to knit corrigated ribbing. But the encouraging thing is looking at the schematic, I only have 15 inches left to knit on the body then the whole attaching the already knitted sleeves thing. It’s a raglan cardigan so there is some additional knitting there (and more … shudder… corrigated ribbing at the collar) but that’s OK. I definitely have less to go than I did at the beginning of the Tour and that’s why I joined.
Very Sadly, there have been several people in the Tour who have been blood doping. There are so many things I could say about that but let’s just leave it at, it’s just sad.
Edited to add: Here’s a link to explain blood doping. I sorta knew what it was and after a couple friends asked too I looked it up for all of us. Blood doping by Wikipedia
On a lighter note, I would like to use the above picture as proof that I have not been knitting doping. I’dve finished the stinkin’ sweater a week ago if I was!!
Also I sit here and fuss and whine about my sweater. My first sweater. The endless sweater (that Linda – a blogless knitting friend did promise me I would finish before Christmas) of miles of stockinette… As I sit here… I’ve got about 4 other sweaters that I SO want to knit. Even tonight as I looked through knitting magazines after knitting with some friends, I bought a magazine that has sweaters in it that I want to make.
C’est la vie, non?
