Dog Days

So what was that I said before about being a better blogger?  Yeah I don’t remember, either. ;)

Anyways.  Today is one of those days.  The kind where I’m having trouble resisting the temptation to crawl under my desk and pretend I’m not here.  You ever have those?  Please tell me it’s not just me.  Also, having recently entered the month of August, it’s really miserable outside.  I arrived at work this morning, after my 10-block walk from the apartment, dripping with sweat.  Ew.

So what did I just do to cheer myself up?  Joined the Ravelympics, of course!  I’ve signed up to compete in the Baby Dressage event.  My goal: complete a Baby Surprise Jacket and a February Baby Sweater, plus possibly a hat or some booties (Saartje’s, natch) by the time the flame goes out.

If this works, I will not only be a Ravelympic winner (Medalist?  Do we get medals?), I will also have a bevvy of knitted gifts to present to my pregnant cousin at her baby shower in September.  I figured making baby stuff for her would give me a little extra motivation to go for the gold.  I’m so proud of myself for thinking of this brilliant plan, I can’t wait to get home and swatch!
