I could make lame jokes about triple lutzes or salchows but I see it is time for the West Coast airing of Skating with the Stars. UGH! I hate watching people fall so I'll skip that, thank you! Anyway, I've joined the Yarn Harlots Knitting Olympics and I am in training. Below is my swatch/training for the Aran hooded pullover I plan to knit in February. I'm using Lion Brand Kool Wool I got for a steal at Smileysyarn.com. My knitting has changed so that I actually had to use a needle larger than called for. I may swatch again, just to be safe. Don't want to overtrain, but want to be sure. I do like how the Lion Brand Kool Wool feels. The color will show the detail and look like the cover. I'm afraid it may make me look even bigger than I am though. Oh well, it will look nice.
