18th Hole

The 18th hole, dear Reader, is both the place where I spent several hours this afternoon AND the name of the colorway of the yarn I brought with me to work a mindless sock during said hours.  I really think that somewhere in the knitting universe, my record should show an extra big gold star for a) bringing knitting to a snooty public event, b) working on said knitting during the entire time, regardless of the fact that I was knitting in 112 degree heat index and I was knitting with wool, for the love of Pete, and c) I matched my location with the yarn colorway. It’s item c that I think pushes me over the line separating “die hard” from “a little scary”, but I ask you, how could I not jump at such an opportunity? (As a side note, if you’re looking for an excuse to build the stash, here’s a great example. “Honey, I know it looks like a lot of yarn and I know it seems I couldn’t possibly knit through it all in three lifetimes, but I need to be prepared for every sporting opportunity I might encounter. I know you wouldn’t want me showing up to the K-State game knitting with red and blue yarn, or the Royals game with white and navy  pinstripe-suggesting yarn. That would be unthinkable!”)

The above picture is at the beginning of our time, and this is from the end:

Progress was made, Gatorade was consumed, and the tournament was exciting until the very last shot.

    Bless you!! I’m so sorry you’re having this level of heat, too. Love your yarn color! We have a new yarn shop about 30 min. from here that has monthly “spin-offs”. We’re talking huge 100+ yr.old warehouse FULL of yarn, wool in all it’s states… I’ve gotta go and see 50+ spinners at the same time. Thought of you.
