Anxiety-inducing

I’ve just added something to my sidebar that can do nothing but increase my anxiety about the Knitting Olympics — clever, aren’t I! It’s a countdown timer, counting down the time left in the Olympics, and recording the percentage of time passed. Apparently it will turn yellow somewhere in the middle of the time, warning me to ratchet up the panic level, and then red as the end approaches. Perfect!

I must thank Anny and her husband for this — she gave up valuable knitting time, apparently, to design it! I’m sure she’d be happy to share it with you if you ask.

Ok, I see that 12.77% of the time has already elapsed, and I’m pretty sure I haven’t knitted that much of my sweater yet (and I think I’ve been more productive this weekend than I’ll be for the rest of the Games — eep!) so I should get back to it.

Love the timer. I can see where it might cause you some anxiety. Especially with you planning a whole sweater. I will be rooting for you.

That bar is hilarious. Just what you need.

Go Aven Go!
