Apolo Ohno

Apolo Ohno recently came to my work and we all had the opportunity to get our picture taken with him and ask him questions.
I stood in line debating on if I should ask him to pose with Knitted Audrey Hepburn (KAH) or not. Not everyone would ask an Olympic gold medalist to hold a knitted doll in front of all their co-workers. He was actually really great about it and asked who she was. Everyone has commented that my picture is the only one where he looks like he is genuinely smiling. I'm choosing not to believe it's because he thinks I'm crazy!

Annemor Sunbo

Last Saturday I had the change to take a Setesdal embroidery class with Annemor Sundbo, it was great. The picture above is me and Annemor and Knitted Audrey Hepburn (KAH). The class was hosted by the Windy City Knitting Guild. I wish there meetings weren't mostly in the city.
I haven't been knitting that much lately my hands have been hurting. I went to see the Orthopedic specialist today and the news wasn't that bad, but I do have tendinitis in both hands and in my left wrist.
I have some physical therapy to do and hopefully that will help and I can get some more knitting done.
