Let the games begin!

Or, I Am A Rather Lousy Ravelympian.

3:30 PM: Buy yarn for Ravelympics socks.

Cherry Tree Hill Sockittome in a potluck colorway ("Water" - whatever. I haven't seen much pink, purple, or red water.)

10:30 PM: Realize that I haven't actually signed up for the Ravelympics.

10:31 PM: Sign up for Ravelympics.

10:45 PM: Search through 15630548304819357314 favorited sock patterns in search of The Perfect Ravelympics Sock.

10:50 PM: Decide to try the Flutter-By socks. Commence swatching. (yes, I know, I swatched for a sock.)

11:30 PM: Realize that the sock is a) WAY too big and b) pooling like crazy.

10:01 AM: After several frantic text and Facebook messages, remember the name of the missions agency.

10:02 AM: Call missions agency. They're on the other side of the country and safe, thank God.

10:15 AM: Realize that I still haven't found The Perfect Ravelympics Sock (TPRS from here on out). Open 350483937951793473070 web browser pages of sock patterns.

It looks good so far! YOu are further along than me. I've barely started the cuff of my Ravelympics sock and I haven't even cast on for Hey, Teach!, but I figure, I'm on vacation, so if I'm a few days late out of the starting gate, so what? (I'm in KC) I'm glad to know your friend is safe!
