Um, I only saw this challenge just now but I think I'll try to get something done.. I'll have time to dye some roving tomorrow, I guess I'll figure out what I'll be making until then!

Keep on trucking, Sarah!
Shannin, you can totally make something!  So long as you can wear it, and you've spun and dyed it, it's eligible!  very do able in 2 weeks, so long as you don't work 80 hrs a week and only get 10 minutes to craft Grin

Yeah, definitely. Smiley I've figured out the colors and stitch I want to use! I'll be dyeing today, spinning tomorrow. And ignoring the fact I have two midterms this week. Wink I'm also currently with my parents until my new apartment arrangements sort out and that's a 40-minute train commute each way... Plenty of time to be knitting/crocheting.

Got the fiber dyed, it's drying now. Did you want us to take pictures of the process? Post them here or during submissions or not at all? Haha.

I have been done since Sunday. (Neener neener neener) I am now just trying to figure out if I want to make it again so that I can fix the flaws in my self made pattern or leave it as is. I spun way more yarn than I needed. And its already dyed so I just need to knit it.
