Things I've learned

The games are on, and the W tank progresses! I had a very enjoyable evening working on it, but I've yet to turn on the Olympics on television. Does that discredit me in some way?

It's a very interesting process to knit the garment side-to-side rather than up from the bottom. My new Olympian skills include increasing by casting on, short rows, and to repeat myself, knitting from side-to-side. While maybe not a specific SKILL, it's definitely expanding my creative view of process and construction. I struggle with knitting, because, as a crocheter, I'm used to having a free-flying garment that I can wrap around myself to figure out construction and fit. Pesky needles get in the way of that.

Knit on team!
