Let the Games Begin
After too much whining about my slow pace in 2006, I think I might have found the kick in the pants I need: The Knitting Olympics, organized by Stephanie Pearl-McPhee of Yarn Harlot fame. The challenge: Cast on a project during the Opening Ceremonies of the Winter Olympics (Feb 10), and finish before the Olympic flame goes out (Feb 26). I will be doing a Saranac from the Summer '05 Knitty (the scary men's issue), and I vow to smash the kneecaps of anyone who gets in the way of my needles. The thrill of victory, the agony of the twisted circular cast-on.
