Start your engines!
I have to admit, I think this is a better inaugural sentiment than the Olympic theme music. Perhaps less dignified, but so what.
As today marked the opening ceremonies of the 2006 Winter Olympics in Torino, I got to cast on for my project that must, per the Yarn Harlot's decree, be completed within sixteen days.
Here is my progress, which amounts to most of the cuff of one mitten. At this rate I will finish, but anything can happen. Right now I just hate hate hate corrugated ribbing because it is possibly the slowest knitting technique I currently know how to employ.
Faster, Higher, Stronger, here I come. (It's either that or an unhealthy combination of carpal tunnel and dropping out of grad school.)
