Tags: Fair Isle, Future Knitting Plans
I’ve decided to take part in the Knitting Olympics. Concept: You must cast on a project during the Opening Ceremonies of the Winter Olympics (Feb 10) and finish before the Olympic flame goes out on Feb 26. That’s 16 days.
It’s sorta striking fear in my heart, but I think it will be okay. I just have to decide now what I want to knit. I’ve posted lots of really neat patterns I’d like to try (a boob holder, perhaps?), but most of them would involve buying new yarn, and I already have piles and piles and piles already. Then again, I don’t really want to start a huge new project using bulk weight, bulk purchase 100% acrylic yarn that I bought in first year (no matter how pretty the green is).
I’ll be going over some patterns today and deciding what to do. The most likely one I will pursue is a scarf + mitten + hat set in fair isle (except for the hat, which will be a solid colour but will involve a really neat pattern). I’ll try to make them match, but who knows?
Feel free to talk me out of this.
