The opening ceremonies of the Olympics were not aired live here, so I cast on my swatch listening to Weezer on Pandora. Probably sacrilege, but I considered it an acceptable substitute. ;o)
I was lucky enough to get gauge on my first try, so I cast on the actual project and managed to get 36 rows into the back before turning in for the night. See?
My husband and I love that movie, so I am making this sweater for him for Christmas. I am using the recommended yarn, Cascade Ecological Wool, in a size 2X. The challenge isn't so much the size or the colorwork (though that would be enough!) but the fact that the entire piece is knit in 1x1 ribbing!
I have had the yarn and the pattern and the plan to knit this for two years... I figured this challenge was the perfect incentive to get it finished in a reasonable amount of time. Wish me luck!
