Competition

Announcer 1: We now go live to WIPs Wrestling. Competing right now is Awesome Mom. She is a relative newcomer to the sport of knitting having only been knitting seriously for about a year. She has come a long way and is a very promising rookie.

Announcer 2: Awesome Mom has a lot to overcome in this competition. She has two small children that really cut into her knitting time and can also distract her which is the biggest cause of pattern mistakes.

Announcer 1: The pattern she has chosen for this round of competition is a pattern with a low level of difficulty. In order to please the judges she has added a few twists to it by adding in some ribbed cuffing and adapting the rise of the soaker to meet Parker's special cloth diapering needs.

Announcer 2: I really like the color she has picked out for this project... Wait! What is going on here? It looks like she is frogging back her project! Yes, she is!

Announcer 1: It seems like Awesome Mom was putting the short rows in the wrong spot on the garment and her last short row was showing a big hole. I think she is going to have to choose another short row technique since this one does not seem to be working well for her.

Announcer 2: This is a big blow to Team Knitting Bloggers. They have already been handicapped by injury. The team captain cut her thumb only a few days before competition started.

Announcer 1: Will Awesome Mom be able to make up her lost ground? We will just have to wait and see. We now turn to the Sockput.

I just snarfed my seltzer. So sorry about the frogging. But think of it this way, at least one of your offspring didn't puke all over your almost finished sweater...in the car... :-).

Man... I could never knit. I tried and failed horribly at it.

I think anyone who does even a half decent job, deserves a great big HURRAY!

Oh yeah that was funny.
