Today’s WIP is brought to you by the
Ravelympics oops, Ravellenics on Ravelry! This year for the Olympics I decided I wanted to try my hand at a Rebbeca Danger pattern, specifically one of her new dinosaurs. I’m a sucker for cute dinos so this was perfect!
Meet Basil. He’s a Brontosaurus!
I managed to get the entire body knitted up on Saturday and Sunday while sitting on teh couch watching a myriad of sports play out on the world’s stage! I have to say that I’ve never watched so many sports in one weekend! The morning road races Saturday and Sunday were some of my most favorite to watch. I also have tried out the NBC iPad app a bit to watch some of the badmitton, kayaking, Equestrian, etc. It’s handy, but I think they should include a guide of some sort that describes the rules and goals of the sport being played. Like handball. No idea what the rules are. Looks like of like water polo without the water, but again I don’t know the rules or strategy for water polo either!
Monday and Tuesday night I watch Olympics and Swimming during the PrimeTime viewing on NBC. I have managed to knit up 2 of the 4 legs for Basil. Hoping to get 2 more done tonight. They go surprisingly quick. I have learned to weave in my ends as I go because they are rather hard to do afterwards.
While I’ve been enjoying the human Olympics, Rocco has taken to competing in a few of his own “doggie Olympics”. Sunday it was a couch napping marathon and Monday it was a ball throwing contest!
Here he is bringing his toy back for me to throw for the 1000th time!
I hope you have enjoyed my WIP Wednesday post! For more visit Tami’s!
