I did it.
So there.

I started the second Hike sleeve last night around 9:00, worked on it for about 1.5 hours, and then again this morning while watching the Tour. I could've gotten more done had I started knitting when I started watching the race, at 5:15am(!), but I really wasn't awake enough to knit until around 7:00...And what a stage it was. Very exciting. Still no idea who is going to win this one. SO much more exciting than all the Tours de Lance...I've not been going on about on this blog, since it's supposed to be about knitting, but I'm a huge cycling fan and have been since I was probably 10 years old. So, the Tour is always an exciting time of getting up early to watch the race live (remember, I live on the left coast, so we're talking pretty early here). I also do this in May for the Giro d'Italia, and again in September for the Vuelta a Espana. It is possible I am insane.

It certainly is possible that you are insane.
Just thought I'd confirm.

Emily, I too am glued to the tv and yes, this is an exciting tour. Landis' comeback today was truly monumental. It may be more exciting because no one has such a clear advantage - Lance was THAT GOOD. I am routing for Floyd since Team Discovery and my man George were such a flop. love, mom
