I made it through most of the Opening Ceremonies, but started to get tired of it during the walking of the athletes. I managed to do my practice swatch and cast on. This is my first time using circular needles. I tried warming them up and stretching them out, but they still are curly. Thank goodness I have a relatively large project so they should stretch out. I am doing a baby blanket using a basketweave pattern. How did everybody else fair?
