I usually access the net from work which means limited access to most thing unless I want a meeting with the boss every month!
So lately all I’ve been up to is reading some of the blogs of the girls that like me are a part of the Knitting Olympics.
And I came up with one post in one of the blogs I usually read that made think for a while… well, more than a while really!
It began by saying that some people just took these Olympics far too lightly by choosing easy and fast projects… I am a civil engineer. I get to work at 9:00 am and usually leave at 7pm. I have 1:30 hour for lunch which I split into half an hour for lunch and an hour for knitting. I get home by 7:30 pm, cook dinner, have dinner, wash the dishes, prepare lunch for the next day and clean the kitchen, it’s 10:30pm by now. I sit on the couch more asleep than awake and pick my needles. Then start knitting until 12:00 pm the most. That makes a grand total of, at least 2:30 h per day. The Olympics last for 10 days including 10 week days and 4 weekend days. 10 times 2:30h equals 22:30 h which is less than a whole day. Considering I did absolutely nothing else during the weekends, I would still have 24 minus 8 sleeping hours equals 16 hours times 4 equals 64; 64 plus 22:30 equals 86:30 knitting hours.
Now… does anyone really believe that?
I believe that each person chose the project they thought were capable of doing considering time and knitting skills.
Unfortunately harder as I may work I don’t even know if I’ll be able to finish my goal! Coincidence or not this has been a crasy week at work which means starting work at 8 am and leaving at 8pm, the least…
We’ll see about that…
