ok ok... I tried posting this yesterday but it was late and the site was moving slow... anyhoo, I'M IN!  I decided last week to do
Fir that was designed by Emms aka loisgriffinwannabe.  I think I am going to use Knitpicks Sierra in Leaf. Or maybe Cinnamon. Or Pool. Dammit - I can't decide. I think I'm ordering my yarn today, latest tomorrow.  This will be my first garment with cables, so woo hoo!  My blog is coming along now, so all I have to do is email the yarnharlot to have my name added and it's ON!

Ok, so I have to change mine again. Why?  Because I'm an over achiever, I already started on the bag and it should be done after this weekend I'm thinking, so for the olympics I'm going to do Mariah from Knitty.com and I'm doing it in KnitPicks Wool of the Andes in Winter Night.
So to re-cap
That's team America
event: Mariah

I'm in! If I can come up with some cash for yarn, I'd like to do the pirate mittens at helloyarn (pdf).  If not, I've got yarn on the way for Jaywalker socks!

On the blog you go to the bottom of a post and where it says comments where you read the comments you can also make a comment or you can just send her an email.

I've been following this thread since it started, and debating about whether or not I wanted to do this.  I've finally made up my mind.  I'm in! (Unofficially, though, cause I don't have a blog.)  My main requirement was that I not have to buy more yarn.  I've put myself on a yarn diet until I use up most of what I have.  (This could literally take years!) 

I was leaning towards doing the Must Have cardigan, but that wouldn't really have been a challenge for me because most of my projects incorporate cables.  What I really need work on is stranded colorwork.  So I've decided to do the Favorite Carryall, a free pattern from Interweave. (Bonus: This project also requires steeking!) I bought some TLC Essentials for this project ages ago, but I've been putting it off. Pattern here (pdf file): http://interweave.com/knit/interweave_knits/pdf_files/Kristins_Carry-All.pdf

I don't even think I'll make a swatch, but I will just start on the 10th.  Since It's not a big project, like a sweater, I'll give myself the extra challenge of making sure that it's done correctly with short floats and whatnot.

I don't have a blog to post updates on, but I'll post my completed project here on craftster on the 26th.

Good Luck everyone!

A yarn diet!!!  That is the best phrasing, ever!  OOOh, I must remember that...  Why don't you start a blog?  They're super easy, and fun!  And free, which totally rocks  Grin

This is such a cool idea. I'm having a hard time deciding what to make, since I can't really afford any yarn right now. I could use a sponsor...Rowan, Noro, are you listening? Wink

Hmm, my name's still not on the official list although I signed up on the first day.  I don't want to bug Stephanie but it seems I've been missed off.   Undecided
