Knitted the above gauge swatches last night
before starting to knit my next
2010 Winter Olympics Opening Ceremonies hat...
for my friend in Maine!
Now that I've knitted a 'practice hat'
(see posts from the previous 2 weeks),
learned the new-to-me techniques required for the color work
and have altered the faulty pattern to my liking...
and because we are officially 'blizzarded in' this morning...
I decided that there is no better time
to start knitting my second 'Olympics' hat!
Here are photos of the Provisional Cast on
using a crochet hook and orange yarn
which will later be removed.
