Gold medal, please!

My Olympic knitting project has been started, worked, and is finished. Pictures to come!
Snowflakes - still not done. It was put on a two week hiatus for the Olympics.
Evenstar Clue 1: Also not done; same reason.
I have, however, successfully grown one thing: my queue (/facepalm). I've decided on my parents' Christmas present, which true to form is enormous, and also on a wedding present for a good friend. The latter involves a custom dye job from Laura at The Unique Sheep
, who was responsible for the amazing gradience colorways used by many people in the Evenstar group.
My knitwear design classes at Kirkwood Knittery
continue apace; I'm loving the class, but longing for the return of lazy Saturdays. It won't be for a while, though: my brother and I are going to Kansas City this weekend for the Billy Joel/Elton John Face2Face concert (I still cannot believe that he was able to get tickets! Dan, if it involved selling a kidney... just don't tell me) and Franklin Habit
(fangirl *squee!*) is coming to St Louis the first weekend in March.
He's both doing a talk & book signing, and teaching classes on Saturday. I've signed up for both the lace intro class and the photography class. I wouldn't have taken the lace one if I hadn't been assured that there is going to be adequate space and I won't be taking a spot from someone who really needs the "Intro" part; mostly it's that I greatly admire his knitting, and for however much I know about lace I am sure that he knows more!
The Blues' Sticks & Stitches game is 3/21, and I need to get a hat or something knit up for that.
Gabe and Tycho from Penny Arcade
are going to be here on 3/31, and I've got to get their crocheted Fruit Fucker in the works.
I'm still going to MD Sheep & Wool in May, so if anyone reading this has anything they want from the festival, let me know beforehand!
I'm planning to drive there, so there's no worry of not being able to transport things.
P. S: Little Big Planet, with the little knitted sackboys? Fantastic game. I'm thrilled that not only does there exist a recent game which is third person perspective'd, I have friends with a PS3! And after years of WoW, I find myself getting bored with single player games; having to play at someone else's house means co-op!
P. P. S. My sackboy is a tiny knitted penguin.
