Shawl Team

My dad heard about the Knitting Olympics on NPR tonight and was disconsolate that I hadn't signed up! So, I'll be knitting a shawl with some green yarn that I'm pretty sure is squirreled away in the cupboard above the linen closet. I'll do a Kiri cast-on and some kind of lace that suits that yarn, probably just figuring it out as I go since otherwise I'll spend all sixteen days scribbling and frogging.

Crawling bootees. Our little friend's night nurse exclaimed to the nanny, whom we saw on the ferry, that the bootees are staying on the babe's busy feet. I have arranged for testing the next sizes up as she grows.
