I’m in. I thought about being a cheerleader for this event, but couldn’t resist being part of the hometown team. But what to knit? What will be my challenge? Do I stash dive and get creative or splurge for something new? Do I knit for myself or for others? Do I want the knitting to overcome a project that has become a chore or do I want to create something completely new? What is my event?
Sheep to shawl – if a they can do it at a Sheep and Wool festival in one day, surely I can do it in two weeks, no?
Lace Shawl – Something with more than a k2,yo pattern. Flower basket shawl perhaps?
Practical Sweater – Raid the stash, pull out the salmon/pink cestari wool and whip up a shapely raglan that I can squeeze a few more wearings out of before spring. Throw in a a cable or two to up the ante.
Sockapalozza – Break out of my hand painted sock rut and use a pattern to decorate the sock.
Maybe I’ll wait and see what events the home team is signing up for and follow the herd.
Thanks to Claudia for an amazing time on Sunday, I talked to so many interesting and kind women from near and far – enjoyed some wonderful food and made some good progress on the CO2 shrug.
