When I worked downtown the Cox Center was called the Myriad, and was open during the day for walkers and I spent many a lunch hour there. It was the venue for the circus and concerts. These days the Ford Center is the big venue and I was curious about how the Cox center was being used. I was happy to see that many events were going on there last night, from Roller Derby to what I thought of as possibly the anti-roller derby: a Women in Ministry conference. There was also a formal ball, and a conference of independent beauty consultants. Truly something for everyone!
I'm still working on my Olympic Socks although there is no hope of completing even one sock before the closing ceremonies. I won't even make it to the heel by tonight. I will finish them, and I am so pleased at how they are coming out. It's an ambitious project and by the time I finish I should be pretty comfortable with cables and cable charts. It may be the last knitting project I ever finish because they will take me the rest of my life to do.
