I shouldn’t have tried to knit lace as I watched Race 7 of the America’s Cup. I ended up unknitting more than I knitted because I was wrapped up in the race. Or I missed a maneuver because I was counting. Thank goodness for Tivo. I finally got smart and put the knitting down and just watched the race. Spinning is a much better choice.

It’s been said that watching a sailing race is like watching paint dry. Well, this series blew that idea right out of the water. If you sneezed, you missed an important maneuver that resulted in a lead change.

I think both the Swiss and the Kiwis did an excellent job of the race. It really could have gone either way. It all came down to 2 seconds. A couple of heartbeats.

I’m glad the Cup is over. I can now return to my knitting.
