Citius, Altius, Fortius

d said I talked about knitting in my sleep last night. As far as I know, that was a first. Must have been butterflies, because tonight is the Opening Ceremonies. This morning I spread out all the items I will be needing for the Knitting Olympics to make sure I have everything for tonight: Lamb's Pride bulky in Sandy Heather and Charcoal Heather, circular 16" No. 13 needles, cable needle, stitch markers, and pattern photocopied larger for easier reading. When I checked out Yarn Harlot's blog a bit ago, I found out I could have cast on a 2pm today, but for weeks I've been envisioning casting on while watching the events begin on the TV. It was a relief to read that caffeine and chocolate are not considered performance enhancing substances. There's no way I would have passed the random drugs tests otherwise. I'm feeling more excited than nervous; my "training" has eased my anxiety about the trickier parts of the pattern, and now I'm just ready to see the stocking take shape and to finish on time.
