I'm doing my first sweater too so my yarn isn't going to be expensive.  I decided today to use chunky USA because I've already got some and it was pretty cheap at Hancock's this afternoon when I picked up some more when I was figuring up yardage.  I just have to frog a baby blanket I've given up on to get the yarn for my sweater and finish my sister's best friend bag.

This is such a cool idea. Im ready to go. Ive got my yarn and Ive got my pattern. Im a fairly newbie so I was thinking about doing the poster boy bag with a Dave Matthews Band firedancer pattern and just mixing up red and yellow yarn to have that awesome flame affect.


Let the games begin!!   Cheesy

JenLa has a shload of buttons for a ton of the different "teams".

I totally grabbed one of theirs too.  But I wanted a USA button like the Canadian one on the Harlot's blog  Grin

I'm going to try to also. I'll have to figure out how to add the link to thingy to my diaryland because when I was doing an entry earlier I spoke about the olympics and such and I wasn't sure how to add a link to different things.  Time to learn

Same here. I bought KnitPicks Wool of the Andes for it. You can't beat a dollar-something per skein for 100% wool. I wish Red Heart wasn't so bad for sweaters, there were so many colors I liked when I looked at our craft stores. Caron Simply Soft felt really nice, but I couldn't find the colors I wanted.

I'm so excited for my order, I've never ordered form KnitPicks before. I hope it comes soon, I want to see it and just touch everything Cheesy (I bought some nice sock yarn too).

I'm going to do the Cozy shawl from Knitty.  Word on the street is the lace pattern isn't too difficult but people tend to lose steam because it takes a while.  Having a time limit will help me forge ahead to the finish.  Plus, I WANNA WEAR IT!

In spite of how slow I have been to finish projects lately, I signed up! I'm going to be doing the Blue Sky Alpacas Snap Cardigan, using BSA Cotton.  The big challenge for me is not really completing a sweater in 16 days (it's not a complicated knit and is in worsted yarn) but overcoming my fear of zipper installation!  I decided that I want to put in a zipper instead of the snap tape.  I figure that if I need to get it done by a certain date, it won't languish unfinished at the bottom of my knitting basket awaiting merely a zipper! If nothing else, I'll have to finish it in time to get it to my tailor to put the zipper in.  Wink

i think it is sweet and shouldnt be too hard, yet oddly satisfying.
So excited to begin...
