Knitting Olympics: Day 3

Dude, I'm busting huge-air on my Olympic Knitting as I chillax and watch some wickedly epic Olympic events.  What a huckfest us knitters are having, it's totally milagro!  My Tubey is sh-moning as I barge the first sleeve -- like I'm really throwing it down.  I decided to go big with major applitude on the sleeve, joining it in the round and adding a tight splash of color.  Okay, okay so nona's a poser -- I'm just stoked about the snowboarding.  Feeling like a hoedad?  This might help.

Does this make it a Half-Tubey?

My first cousin is a skier/snowboarder...like professionally. Although not in the olympics this year, he has faired really well in other games. I swear I have no idea what he is talking about when I do get to see him. Really, they have a language all of their own.

Hey, thanks, dude! Between trying to knit lace and listening to the incomprehensible lingo on the TV last night, it was nearly an out-of-body experience!

Go Tubey!

I was amazed that the commentary for the snowbarding didn't mention "dude" once! I could actually understand the linking words, just not the technical terms!

I am impressed with your speedy knitting!

Hee hee! I think you should totally call your sweater a half tubey.

Great. You're gonna get Tubey done before the games are over, and I'm gonna "pull a kwan" and recuse myself for the good of the games. Sigh.

"pull a kwan"! I love it!

I saw the men's cross country! That was pretty inspiring!

SO damn funny!!! My kids are obsessed with the Flying Tomato...

I read my boyfriend this entry, and now he's been trying to speak Snowboarder. I have to keep reminding him that Tubey is a sweater pattern, not another name for the halfpipe. :)

I ALMOST called the Marine!Goth for a translation in there . He's not a snowboarder per se, but hangs around with a couple of them. And there's enough overlap with skateboard-ese for him to translate for his hopelessly out of date mom.
