Learning new things

What in the world am I doing up at 2 in the morning? Learning a new technique, that's what!

I wasn't able to sleep tonight, so I dug out my Cat Bordi book on the 2-circular technique and started a part of wrist warmers from some worsted weight stash yarn. The initial cast on and join isn't really all that tricky -- the fun part is that first round, making sure it isn't twisted. It took me 3 full rounds to be satisfied that I knew what I was doing (and that it wasn't twisted) but it is starting to look pretty good now. The pattern is a simple 2x2 rib, similar to a sock cuff. I'm adapting it as I go from Bonne Marie's pattern in the Winter '02 Knitty.
