Erg! I had to change my mind again... the wool I bought is treated, so it won't felt... the ball band is in chinese, so I didn't know, anyway, I didn't buy it to felt it originally. So no French Market Bag.

I haven't had any ideas for a new colour scheme for the Fair Isle, so no fair isle.

So I am going to make this: Bella Paquita

That's it, no more entries for me!

So I may have missed this but I was wondering if you have to take pictures and stuff and put it on the blog for it to be official, it makes sense that you would but since I don't have the picture capabilities I'm disqualified if that's the case. 

I don't think you have to take pictures... certainly no-one here will mind if you can't post pics. As for the Yarn Harlot's site, I'm sure she won't mind if you tell her you're camera-less.

Oooo I need to do this. I even have a blog started, pathetic though it may be, and completely pictureless to date due to laziness on my part. Now to find a pattern. I'm back at work so that really cuts into my knitting time.  Any suggestions for a relatively newbie knitter that can be done during lunch breaks and after work? I'm thinking of Knitty's Sonnet. http://www.knitty.com/ISSUEfall03/PATTsonnet.html  It's listed at mellow but between the size of the item and the time I'll have available to knit, it will be a challenge, but still doable to complete. Ay other ideas?

Chuck Norris does not knit. He bangs the table, and the shockwaves force the yarn to create clothing.

My blog is pretty pathetic too (and I"ve had it since 2001) and pictureless but since it may not be necessary to have pictures  I jsut need to pick out a pattern and train.  I've never done lace so maybe something with lace.

Ooh, that may be a good choice for me...why can't all knitting patterns be written like that one? Plus I just got a load of antique buttons...

Last night when I read the blog entry, I thought, "No.  No.  Don't even go there.  Knitting Mariah from Knitty for this would be utterly psychotic."

It turns out I'm psychotic.  Utterly.

I want to join, but I"m trying very hard to not buy any new yarn (heresy you say?).

I have ALOT of worsted weight wool in a variety of colors, but generally all 4 ounce hanks.

I would go with quantity as a choice.  I need to knit up several pairs of felted mocs, and some child sized sweater vests for charity.  Also child socks for charity knitting.

Ideas for me?

If my husband likes this cardigan http://www.helloyarn.com/cyclingaran.htm....I'm in....he is 6'6 so I feel that knitting that much sweater in 16 days would be an Olympic Event for me (especially since my first sweater took three months)...an endurance challenge to say the least....Happy knitting all, and good luck in your chosen sport!!

edit: ok he doesn't like the sweater...at all...so It will be http://www.knitty.com/ISSUEsummer04/PATTlolita.html from Knitty for me!
More on the blog....

I'm going to have to do this!  I would love to do the fuzzy heart sweater from Hollywood Style (picked it up on sale this past weekend! Score!) for my friend's daughter, who is about to turn 1 right smack in the middle of the Olympics! 

I'll have to order the yarn, though, and I'm not sure if it will get here in time!
