The Yarn Harlot has created a challenge: The 2006 Knitting Olympics. The basics of the Knitting Olympics are that you should pick a project that is challenging. You can't cast on until the Olympic flame is lit and you must finish before the fire is extinguished (that's February 10th through the 26th). I have accepted this challenge and I have decided that this is a great opportunity to push myself to start the Fibertrends Baltic Sea Stole. I bought the pattern at Stitches Midwest 2005 and I bought the most wonderful yarn for it a couple months ago. This will be my first official lace project. Is anyone else going to join in?
