My sister sent me a soft glorious scarf for Valentine's Day made of real pure velvet in deep amethyst purple. I put it on and have not taken it off, well except to sleep. It has become my Olympic talisman scarf.
So how are we doing?

The last two events are a bit delayed so have accrued some penalty points but it should be completed within the Olympic times. The extra points garnered with the brim should cancel these minuses.
