Rule Knitania

I'm still on a bit of a high after our awesome Olympic games opening ceremony last night. We had our neighbours round as they don't have a TV, plus its nice to share these experiences. They're from Singapore and America and their Canadian friend was over too so we represented three continents between us.

As a result my knitting went out the window.

We did have cake, Olympic cheesecake...
Plus British beers and international snacks.

It was really interesting watching the ceremony with non-Brits who looked blankly at some of the in-jokes such as Michael Fish's 1987 weather report and The Archers theme so we were happy to explain the nuances of British culture.

I'm nursing a bit of a sore head today thanks to our neighbour's Italian-Chinese walnut liqueur they brought from Beijing where they used to live (it was also fun comparing the Beijing and London ceremonies).

I have done a little bit of knitting on my WIP wrestling entry which happens to be in Gamesmaker colours. I wonder if this was a subliminal thing as my OH is volunteering in the games...
