Olympics Day One

I have cast on. I have finished the first chart on the Peacock Feathers Shawl. I am resisting the urge to think "This will be a doddle!". I have learned something important: It is physically impossible to unwrap a Cadbury Creme Egg while knitting.

Question: How do I go about joining a team? Have I left it too late?

Shouldn't your support crew be doing that for you?!

I meant feed you the egg... Here's a page with links to numerous Australia teams. I bet you can still find a team!

That is too funny about the creme egg. It is just 8:22 am casting on for the Americans yet...or were they doing it all on Italy time?

Good luck! I've found it impossible to open a DVD case while knitting and fending off cats at the same time.

Willow loves DVDs going into the DVD player. It is the 'bestest-game-ever' for her -- paws on screen, ear to box, hopping back and forth and all over the place to get in on the action.

Meiko is enchanted by the printer spitting out paper - she generally has to be restrained from climbing into it to see where it's all coming from!

What is a doddle?

And I bet with practice you could. Well, maybe not. Cadbury Creme Eggs are wrapped fairly tightly.

Did you find a team?

Morning! We missed you at crafties. You know how you were wondering how to do links to other people's blogs? Well, putting a button up is pretty similar.
I've got lots on the sidebar of my page - just save one and then put it on your blog. Dave can help?

A doddle is a breeze, a walk in the park. It's a good word, but definitely one of those words which sounds silly if you say it a lot. Doddledoddledoddle.
Okay, I'm fine now....

It's a lovely word. It's going to join flibbertigibbet and gobsmacked. I just wanted to make sure I was using it correctly.

I also like "slobberchops" which was a seventeenth century word for a sloppy eater....
