And we're off!

Hey, look! I finished something! , Knitting , Olympic Knitting 2006

I started casting on right at two, and had a bit of a rocky start. The cast on seemed a bit wonky, but I decided to trust Nancy Bush and keep going. Here's the cast on and three rounds:

Unfortunately, any more progress will have to wait until after at least most of the things on my 15-item to do list are done. And after I nap, because the Opening Ceremonies are until midnight and then I need to be at the airport at 5:30 am.

And in a quick break from all-Olympics-all-the-time, here's the game of "One of These Things Is Not Like the Other" I mentioned:

Um. Huh? Those are my mother's Cool Little Mittlets (belated Christmas gift). They are indeed knit from the same skein of yarn. Does Noro Kureyon usually do this?

They're actually less similar in person than they are in the picture. The colors never repeat. None of them. Ever. I swear the last thing I knit with Kureyon didn't do this. Are some of the colorways just like this? What's going on?

P.S. To the person who found my site searching for "Evan Lysacek gay," if that's a question, I don't know the answer. But cheer for him either way, will ya?

I've never seen Kureyon do that before, but I've only done a hat and a vest with it, both two big to get that effect. I have to try wrist warmers with it now, just to see.

Sorry, Kat, but hte quick answer to the Noro question would be...yes.
I just finished mitts, they kinda match if you hold one upside down beside the other and squint really hard.
The colours are great though!

Yes Noro Kureyon does that. Here's a link to a pair of wristwarmers I made with Noro Kureyon http://blogit.hernekeppi.fi/tekele.php?itemid=551

The text is in Finnish but the pic speaks for itself.

Were there any knots in your skein? Noro's not so good about maintaining color progression or dyelot with knots...
