Waiting for the torch...

I got my Knitting Olympics yarn in today, thank goodness. I spent the last hour watching the pre-show, I suppose, and the Opening Ceremony while swatching furiously, trying to get the right size needles. I managed 15 stitches per 4 inches on size 10 US (6 mm) and 19 stitches per 4 inches on size 9 US (5.5 mm). The gauge given on the pattern is 17 stitches per 4 inches. Since I tend to cheat on my swatches and only knit a few rows, I decided to play it safe and go with the size 10, since cables pull in knitting. Now I'm just waiting for the torch to be lit, and since they've only made it to China in the parade of athletes, I think I might go wind more yarn. Or clean my room.
