I'm in as soon as I find a pattern that is challenging but not too challenging.  I had planned on starting the Urban Rustic gloves from knitty after I finish the project I'm on now or trying to start now, but that might not be as challenging as it should be.  I've made gloves, I've made one purse, I've made a shawl, I can do cables.  I've never done much color work so maybe something with color work or lace...I'm not sure about lace I'm not a fan but it looks interesting to attempt.  Maybe a purse with color work?  I'll have to look and etc.

Everyday, I take a look at what the Harlot's up to, and I was so excited to read about the Knitting Olympics! I was just falling over myself about it, this is going to be fun. I'm making a baby cardigan and I'm hoping to also get matching booties and a hat done. And, Miss Elextra, I am using stash yarn and not buying more (I tend to have an issue with the size of my stash...)

Okay I've been looking and I think I want to do this http://knitty.com/ISSUEfall05/PATTblackberry.html.  I've never done a sweater so I thought maybe a shrug would be a good start?  Do you think that's doable in the 16 day time period?

Oooo - I'm in!  I've never done lace before, so I think I'll try knitty.com's branching out scarf.  I have some gorgeous rowan kidsilk mohair that should work out nicely.

I'm in, and for some crazy reason, I'm signed up for Mariah from Knitty.

If I succeed, I'll have a completed cardigan for my birthday on the 27th. Cheesy

I will be doing fairly easy fair isle from stitch n' bitch. I have already knit this sweater once, only for it to be ridiculously small, in spite of an accurate gauge swatch. Plus, it was made from lamb's pride bulky, way too warm for so cal. I will be using Lion Brand woolease chunky.

I am so completely in.  I signed up on the Yarn Harlot's blog yesterday.  I only just thought to check the Craftster Knitalong section now (I'm a bit slow this week  Roll Eyes)...

I'm doing a sweater my mum's been begging for since I learned to knit 4 years ago.  A zippered cardigan, with Aran patterning and raglan shaping.  I totally have to figure out what stitch patterns to use.  My mom even wants bobbles (I cannot believe this woman gave birth to me).  In the end, it'll probably resemble this: http://www.sheepyvalley.com/images/patt20big.JPG

And, of course, I'll post all my misery and complaints - and eventual victory - on my blog.  Is anyone in the Lane County, OR area??  My Guild's talking about arranging a group for this.  We're gonna have medals or ribbons or something for our competitors... just thought I'd ask  Grin

I'm still looking for a pattern that I is:

1. a challenge
2. something I will love to wear

To top that off I think I need a knitting blog now. I've been thinking about getting one since I learned to knit but I now think I need one. lol

Erg! I had to change my mind again... the wool I bought is treated, so it won't felt... the ball band 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 colours 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!

Emms  Cool

I've tried starting Bella Paquita twice, only to find that the boobage allowances don't work with my boobage requirements. Maybe I should bite the bullet and re-graph the bodice, and jump in on this knitalong. Even if I don't, let me know how you come along with it, okay?
