Ok

I have been in a bit of a knitting funkyness. It seems I can not get even simple patterns right. Hench not much knitting has been going on. I made a hat and well it is still drying (i wore it out in the blizzard, it was very warm). I love it even though the Hubby thinks it makes my forehead look big - uh honey I do have a big forehead. = ) Love that man!!

So What to do. Well the winter Olympics are coming and since hockey is on break for them I decided to kick this knitting funckyness by signing up for the Knitting Olympics started by the Yarn Harlot. Basically you cast on when the flame is lit and be finished by the time the flame goes out. (Hopefully) The only real rule besides the time thing is that it should be a challenge. Now everyone's knitting level is different so there are lots of different projects going on.

Me well I decided to knit a sweater. Yep a whole sweater in 17 days. And I picked a sweater that uses Dk weight not bulky weight. The sweater is Stardust. It will be for me.

So I have a few knitting ends to clean up and get ready for tomorrow start!

Stardust is cute! And at least it is not a floor-length cabled sweater! I think you can nail this one with a score of 10.

Good luck with the sweater. What color you doing? White with the sparklies? Very pretty no matter what color you use.

Ooh, love that pattern. I'm doing the CPH and even though I'm going as fast as I can, I am worried about the cutoff. Gotta keep up with my imaginary schedule. :) Can't wait to see your progress!

Good luck! You can do it! It always takes me months or years to knit a sweater I get so darn distracted! I'll be checking in on your progress!
