Ok so this was supposed to be a Friday post, but I had more than a few technical issues driving me insane so I saved it and gave up.. Pretend it’s Friday ok?
Sorry for my absence again. The past week and a half has been particularly awful as my nephew, Oliver, passed away at 4 and a half months. I wasn’t sure if I was going to post today either, but there are a couple of things I want to talk about.
The first is Kappi, the new name of my mom’s hand knit goods. She makes intricate viking hats — hand knit, sewn and fully lined — as well as cute little crochet hats with flowers and buttons. She plans on designing scarves for fussy kids in the near future.
You can check out Kappi at www.facebook.com/knitkappi. here are a couple of sad snapshots I took on my sister’s phone.
The second bit of news is Olympic gold medalist and world record holder, Yuzuru Hanyu! I must say, the Olympics have been a wonderful distraction lately. Today was terrifying — I wouldn’t say I was disappointed in him, but I definitely worried. I have seen him skate much better. However, his gold was well deserved. He won because he had a huge lead after his short program as he broke the world record for the second time this season with a massive 101.45. He has made history in many ways this week; he is the first male to break 100 points in a short program, he broke his own record of 99.84, is the first Japanese male figure skater to win the Olympic gold medal and the second youngest gold medalist. I am so proud to be a Yuzuru fan ^-^d
Now that men’s is over, I have to find something new to distract myself with…
Have you been keeping up with the winter Olympics? What sports do you follow?
