Faster, Higher, Sockier

I’m doing the same thing for this year’s Knitting Olympics as I did four years ago – I’m making kilt hose. Only this time, I have a vague idea of what I’m doing, and I’m not making the hose for myself. They’re going to a friend of mine at work who is going to be participating in a Scottish wedding in August. He’s very excited about the chance to wear a kilt and he knows the importance of proper hose to go with it. So I was only too happy to oblige his request for a pair of John Anderson kilt hose.

I’m also working as support for the 2010 Knitting Olympians this year – The Yarn Harlot put out a call for a sign-up page a few days before the event started, and I threw one together for the project. I was painfully aware of just how badly my coding skills have atrophied while writing it, but it’s up and running and the server has not been bricked by the load.

Pics of the WIP coming very soon.

    The form fair rules. I used it! :) Though I failed to mention that my Olympic project was a WIP…

    Pretty quiet from your neck of the woods lately. How’s things?

    Thank you for putting up the form and hosting the page! Much appreciated :-)

    (This Jane-y is in Canada, btw. Who also says thanks for the Knitting Olympics form.)

    A question about the form – is there any way to go back to our original comment to indicate when we have “won” – i.e. finished the knitting of our Olympic project? Or are you going to provide a separate page for that?

    I’m asking for a friend. Not having been successful – yet – with my project.

    I wimped out this year as things are crazy at work, I am too stressed, and the end of the marking period is this coming Fri. and 1/2 my classes are testing (which means I have to write, give (of course) and grade the things) this Wed. or Thurs. and grades are due on Fri. Can’t wait to see pics of the hose.

    Thank you for building the registration for the Knitting Olympics! How do I enter that my project is complete?
