Knitting for Confidence #7

Well here we are, at the end of another Olympics!  I can't believe how fast those two and a half weeks flew by!  Were there any sports/events you watched religiously?  Swimming for me.  It was so bittersweet watching Michael Phelps' last Olympic race.  I practically cried!  It was the end of an amazing era; one that will be known for decades to come.

I'm also at the end of my first Ravelympics!  (I don't care what the Olympic Committee says - it will always be the Ravelympics to me; never the Ravellenic Games)  I am still in disbelief that I have finished my first real sweater!  I absolutely adore this one, and am already starting to think about sweater #2!  Although I only have one more week (one more week!) of summer left and am incredibly sad about it, I can't wait until fall when I can wear this sweater!  You can't tell from the pictures, but I was sweating bullets during this photoshoot; it's been blistering hot the last few weeks here.  It was torture knitting this heavy wool sweater in that kind of weather!

Did anyone catch the Perseid meteor shower last night?  I was out on my high school's soccer fields until 3:30 AM.  :)  I'll be sharing pictures from that adventure in the next few days!  xx

P.S.  Kudos if you noticed - my crazy purple rockstar hair is finally gone!  I decided I wanted a change and went brunette.  My hair's never been this dark before, so it'll be fun to have.  :)  Also: the tan line down my thighs is real - that's what happens when you sit in a chair in the sun all summer lifeguarding!  It's pretty impressive, no?  ;)

currently listening to.... In The Dark - Dev
