Knitters, Start Your Engines!
So, here's the deal. Our illustrious Yarn Harlot is hosting a little contest. To win (and she's very magnanimous - if you finish, you're a winner), you must cast on for a new project after the olympic torch is lit, and finish it before the flame is put out. Here's the catch - it's got to be a project that's a challenge for you as a knitter. Something you haven't knit before, something that's a little bit of a stretch for you, would be perfect. It depends on your own personal level as a knitter, but it has to be something that's a little bit of a challenge. That means no dishcloths, Lisa. You've got to learn something new for this one, that's half the fun. You can't cast on early, either.
If you finish your project before the Olympics are over, you win a fancy gold medal button for your blog, to show the whole world that you're a winner. (I'm really liking this "everyone's a winner", "challenge yourself as a knitter" mentality, competition does terrible things to my complexion.) Good luck!
I think I have my project in mind... Lace, anyone?
