Am I boring you yet? Are these questions really blog posts, or just a cop-out way to let me feel like I’m still blogging but really I’m just too lazy/distracted to take photos and write genuine original content?
I think I might be boring myself, these days…
Have you ever entered your knitting (or anything else) in the fair? Would you ever consider it?
Ever entered? Nope. Would I do it? Yes, I think so. Currently my “local” agricultural fair is the Royal, so I don’t think I’m up to calibre here! But if I were to move to a smaller community, I think it could be interesting to see how my knitting/spinning held up to others’.
What Olympic event would best describe you knitting/knitting style?
Confession time: I don’t really care about the Olympics. I remember watching with my parents as a kid, but I’ve never been a “sporty” one. So now, I barely know what counts as an Olympic event.*
Are there any non-competitive events in the Olympics? (Um…ok, probably not.) Well, I don’t really think of my knitting as any competition or event. My knitting is something I do to relax, to make girly things and the occasional gift. Maybe I’m the “Interpretive Ribbon Gymnastics” of the knitting world…
*Last night we were in a pub, which had several t.v. screens showing Olympics. The one most in my view had what I can only imagine was “women’s power walking”. Dudes. I had no idea this was considered a sport (it’s a race, obviously; but if someone starts to jog, are they disqualified?!?), and it certainly was bizarre seeing a crowd of scantily-clad athletic women with flipping feet, jelly legs, pumping arms and wibbly-wobbly middles, all walking as fast as they all could (without jogging, of course) around the course.
