Knitting Olympics

Got off to a rocky start. I wanted to make Blake's gloves match his scarf by using both teal and brown yarn.  I cast on Friday, but after going a while, I realized the gloves were going to be way too big for Blake.  I was using two strands of yarn and #3 US needles.  I gave up on Friday night and went to bed.

Saturday morning I cast on  again using only a single strand and #2 needles.  Blake said given the choice of colors, he wanted brown gloves.  So now I'm back at it.

Here's the progress so far.  I'm just starting the increases for the thumb.
