Skiing and Kntting

Here are those pictures I said I'd show you. It was such a pretty day out, the sun was bright and it must have been only about -3C. Here is Q skiing down the hill, you can't tell from the pictures but he pretty much skis straight down the hill as fast as he can.

I don't know very much about skiing but it really looks to me like PJ is the best skier of the bunch. She takes her time and really enjoys each run, she turns as much as she can linking lots of turns in a row and zig zags back and forth down the hill. She is not the fastest of the three, but she sure gets the most out of the mountain.

Here is the speed demon. Surprise, surprise. He was so fast I never did get him in motion. I think the boys need to slow down and learn thier turns. But this comes from the girl that has never been on skiis before. (Let record show that I do know how to snowboard, but would much rather snow shoe)

Here is the ony picture I got of the kids at the tube park. I was busy riding the hill myself to take any!

I took these to give you idea what the tubing hill looked like. It was getting overcast and dusk was on it's way so the pictures are really crappy. Hard to get any depth of field under those conditions.

These socks have been laying around with no toe until yesterday. I finished them up while watchig the SuperBowl. (I think the superbowl is especially for knitters: good excuse to knit, watch tv and drink beer on a if we really need an excuse)

Yup, on all Superbowl counts except for the beer. I was drinking champagne. You forgot the mountains of junk food.

I don't do downhill, just a little cross country skiing a while back. I'm not willing to do a sport that requires an ambulance on site. I hate to go fast on skis. You may call me the skiing chicken.

Should I find myself in a local snow storm I will be able to don my skis and get to the grocery store for supplies. It's flat here anyway.

Sounds like a good Superbowl, a great game, food and new socks.

Great photos. Looks like everyone was having a good time.

dwgnldy said... didn't really knit and drink beer during the superbowl. If you did your stitches wouldn't match and one stock would be bigger than the other. LOL!

I love the red! One of my absolute favorite colors.

I also loved the pictures of the kids skiing. Any Olympic hopefuls in the group?
