Olympic Progress

Here is the progress done on my Olympic Knitting project. This is the cap for Girlie. The picture is kind of dark, but the flash wouldn't show the stitch definition otherwise. The hat is being knit on size 8 straight needles, to be seamed up when done knitting. The thought of that almost gave me hives, because I'm used to doing hats in the round on circular needles. I'm slowly getting a little more confident in my finishing work, but that is what makes it a challenge for me, and therefore Olympic-worthy.

My thoughts on Rowan Calmer yarn so far? I'm really liking it. At over $10 per ball, that is not necessarily a good thing. What I'm loving about it is the stitch definition it provides because it's not made up of several strands twisted together (I forget the correct name for that at the moment) but rather presents itself as one solid string. It's very soft and squeezable. I think I'm in love. I wonder why it's so expensive for a cotton/acrylic blend. Maybe it's the process of making it into one strand. Whatever it is, me likey.

Many, many thanks to mamma for your technical support with pictures and such in the sidebar. I'm going to try to see if I can work on the links sometime when my brain is not so fried. Your help is very much appreciated.

The current movie line contest is proving harder than I thought. The line is:

"There's going to be some serious rue-age."

I will now provide a hint, though it may or may not be what you're looking for. But I will never leave you hanging. Here is the hint: the person who spoke this line is nominated for an Academy Award this year for best actor. And the movie this particular line is from would definitely NOT earn any acting nominations, though it's still fun to watch. Hope that helps.

Good luck to all.

I have an idea of what the answer si to the movie contest, but I don't want to say because I amy ruin it for someone who really knows. I'm not even sure its even correct. I'll wait a few days, then say it.
