I Want to Knit All Day

This morning I almost didn't get off at my stop to go to work.  I am knitting a cowl inspired by the stitch of this cup cozy and I just wanted to continue knitting all the way to the end of the line. I was just in a great knitting mood, my needles were just clicking away easily.  I will get some pictures of the cowl in progress for you to see what it looks like; it should be just lovely.

Do you have days like that when creating just goes so well you could continue for hours without stopping?  I know I could have done this today.

Fun Bowling Tournament

Saturday night I participated in a best box bowling tournament. A team consists of two players and they play 2 boxes at a time; the better score of the two players is used to calculate the points. Four games are played and the one with the most pins win.

It's the fourth year that I participate in it; I ended up winning it the first time.

This year the competition was extremely good.  Teams played a minimum of 10 perfect games!  Two of them were played on the same lanes I was playing.  Normally it's both teammates that help each other out but one of them was by a single player.  His teammate just sat and encouraged him through the entire game.  It was great to see him play. They ended up playing another perfect game together.

The winning team played 4 perfect games!  Now that is extremely amazing!  The coordinator of the tournament had never seen this happen in over 25 years of tournament.  He also hadn't seen so many perfect games played by so many teams.

As usual there were murmurs of how the teams weren't matched up properly and so on.  But come on! Who would ever think a team could play perfectly for four games in a row?  That's 48 strikes! I have played a few perfect games and they are not that easy to play.  I have also seen top players play together and not even play a perfect game.

I really don't understand how people cannot see the exploit for what it is. Simply amazing!
