Keeping TRACK

Completed 6.25 repeats of the Feather & Fan Fog Shawl (FFFS) during the opening ceremonies. Oh MY GOD, the opening ceremonies were phenomenal!!! They walked on air!!! The sheer numbers of performers was mind boggling. I love the parade of nations, that is one of my favorite parts of the Olympics. GO USA!!!

08/09/08 My DSL is down.- probably because a bazillion people are streaming the olympics from I switched from the Options to the Harmony Needles on the FFFS, the options were irritating my carpal tunnel scar.
