I've lost my mind...but that really isn't a shocker.
I lost my ever living mind...so bear with me, the explanation is coming. It still may not make sense, but it's mine, it made sense to me at the time and I will defend my insanity until the very end. I decided not only to participate in the Tour KAL, but I thought I'd make as many pairs representing the different jerseys as possible. Now, not every pair met qualification. The green pair meet regulations (and anti-doping says that it tested clean as well) Meets all criteria. It's my entry for the Tour de France Kal.....I'm not sure if it's going to be named Mark Cavendish or Thor Hershov (I just killed his name, sorry Thor, but I'm tired and I am NOT surfing the answer tonight. Maybe Monday.)
The rest of the socks are collectively my entry for the July Kal. In there is the We are the World flag socks (and yes, I started those right after MJ died - I really thought I was clever there for a moment, now I find it cheesy, but it is what it is) The plain white pair apperar to be the Andy Schleck socks, the white with red beads are Pilotti (again, name massacare) and the teal pair with gold beads are Team Astana Rolling Thunder (rolling thunder being the name of the pattern). The shades aren't quite right, but that was my intent as I knit them along. There will be no yellow. I frankly ran out of time. I am spending all weekend at an outdoor swim meet, and I'm not going to mess up some great yarn I ordered just to finish in time. Meanwhile, most of the knitting was, in face, in front of Versus' coverage of the Tour. I also challenged my slim and trim challenged body to ride my exercise bike 10% of the race distance....on level 1 (little resistance). I'm pretty sure I have my mileage done as well, so what can I say, this is a great weekend.
The finished photo is to follow.
the crazy one :D
