So. The Olympics are over. As are the Ravellenic Games. And I did not achieve glory:
I couldn't even see the podium:
But. Here's the thing about the Olympics. Just to participate is an honor. And this year I was not a favorite. I was not at the top of my game. I did not have the focus, drive, determination, or (AHEM) time I needed to achieve gold. But I"m still proud of my accomplishment.
I knit more over these games than I have in the last 6 months. And that is thrilling. It shows me that I CAN make time for myself. Even if it's just brief moments. I CAN DO IT. And when I do the results are pretty impressive:
I was the country with one competitor who was just happy to be there.
So I'll keep going with this sweater. I have some new yarn coming to me on Thursday thanks to my knitting group's influence and my hope is to have this finished by then.
