In preparation for the big event starting Friday, I have practised figure-eight cast-on. Very interesting and unusual. Also quite tricky, but it seems to do the job. I thought the Hat-heel socks would use Emily Ocker's circular cast-on, but this is much better. No hole!
I can't wait.
I'm just wondering when exactly I'm supposed to start my project(s). Whatwith the time difference the Olympics won't start until 3am and I'm not getting up to cast on any stitches at that time on a Saturday morning, believe you me. Maybe I can just start any time on Friday?
