Very briefly, of crazy hockey and crazier yarn

This will be totally brief, because it's just about bedtime. I was out earlier this evening, then came home to watch the end of the Bruins game, which was, as they say, a barnburner*. Seriously, it was 2-0 Boston after one period, 6-4 after two, and they won 8-6. And there were so many fights, it was ridiculous, like six-Bruins-in-the-box-simultaneously ridiculous (in the second period), and only-five-spare-skaters-on-the-bench** ridiculous (near the end of the game).

*I don't know why they call it a barnburner, but they do.
**Usually there are about 14.

But I would like to say that tonight, in decent lighting, I got confirmation from multiple other knitters that yes, it is really weird how dark this sock is coming out, compared to the ball of yarn.


Totally weird. Doesn't look possible, yet it happens. Knitting goes by its own rules.

Wow. That *is* dark. You'd expect more of the golds to show up. I wonder if it will get brighter and lighter as you get to the outside of the ball.

YES, I too would expect more GOLD showing up! But no! Knitting/yarn is weird.
