Knitting Olympics Training

It looks like I will be going with Hey Teach for my Knitting Olympics/Ravlympics.  I’ve registered using the Yarn Harlot’s form here and I’ve set up my Ravelry project page here (registration required to see).  I even swatched the project yesterday.

Hey Teach Swatch

My swatch is not a thing of beauty.  I started out with 26 stitch cast on, aiming to measure for a gauge of 17 stitches for 4 inches.  I did manage to get that with US9 needles. So, I figured, since that went so well I would give the lace pattern a try just to see how it looked with the yarn.  That ment I needed to to do increases to get to the right number of stitches, which is why the swatch flairs out at the top.

Overall, I am happy with the drape of the yarn for the given gauge, and with how the lace pattern looks.  Now it is a matter of waiting until this evening to cast on (assuming I don’t go to sleep early).  In the meantime, I’ll work on Sewing Seeds and try to get my Francie sock done.
